Read in January, 2011

Very fun cookbook, reproducing eighteenth century dishes referred to in Patrick O'Brien's "Aubrey/Maturin" novels. Instructions for ship's biscuit include the direction to knead by beating with a marlinspike. They also offer two alternative methods: "One is to run it repeatedly through a hand-cranked pasta machine; the other, much more exciting though a bit less efficient, is to put it in a large stout bag and repeatedly drive a car over it."
