I have several books on kitchen equipment. Inc. Irons in the Fire.
There's Yarwood, a shire album or two, let's see what else...
I have several of Peter Brears' pottery volumes; several on silverware, etc. grates, spit irons, etc.
(has anyone checked Brears' books for cast iron references?)
Stuart Press has two volumes.
Cookery Techniques and Equipment 1580-1660 Stuart Peachey
Volume 1: Fuel and cooking methods and equipment including ovens, roasting, boiling, grilling etc. £7
Volume 2: Food preparation methods and equipment including grinding, sorting, drying, cutting, colouring etc.
Prospect Books also has books that might be of interest. However, the books are at home and I am on the road.
I did a readers guide several years back on equipment. It would have to be redone.
Have you checked Dame Katja's paper?
