Back in August and September 2010, I listed several books that are now  
available as EEBO Editions. This includes cookery books, etc., but  
also works on gardening, herbals, assizes of bread. Lots of great  
original titles.

In December they did another release, so there are more titles now  
being sold on Amazon.
New titles include several 17th works that may be of interest:

Searching them is a bit of a bother. The best way to find them is go  
to Amazon. Then do an advanced search in books and  under publication  
search under EEBO Editions.
  Then in the keyword box, add in terms like cookery or Markham or  
Partridge or even Delightes. Keep playing around is what I suggest.  
There are now several volumes that are available from different years,  
so you can choose different editions by year. There are three assizes  
of bread now available - 1560, 1532, and 1555.

There's 44 titles under Cooking, Food & Wine › EEBO Editions
