History of Biscuit
We all love biscuits alongside a good cup of tea, but have you ever wondered where your biscuits originally came from? Interestingly the simple biscuit that we love to indulge in has a history dating back to the Roman Empire
The history of the cookie spans back to the Dutch with the term cookie deriving from Dutch ‘koekje’, meaning little cakes. Though the cookie has now become a significant part of the food culture in America, according to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America the “early English and Dutch immigrants first introduced the cookie to America in the 1600s.”
The biscuit is believed to have been developed sometime during the middle ages. Deriving from the Latin term bis cotus (meaning twice baked), it was adopted into English in the 14th century, to represent a twice-baked product.
Baking having been labour intensive in the sixteenth century, cookies and biscuits were mostly baked in home kitchens as a special treat. Sweeteners like sugar being a luxury at the time, most biscuits and cookies were sweetened with honey and baked with minimal ingredients.
Between the 17th and 19th centuries and due to colonialism, sugar moved from being a luxury ingredient to becoming a bulk commodity affordable to everyone. This increased the production of the biscuit and also enriched the product. The industrial revolution of the 19th century made way for the mass production of biscuits and cookies.
Like any food that evolves with the experimenting and addition of different ingredients, the biscuit too has developed. Cooks of the ancient civilizations of the Middle East explored ways to uplift the ordinary biscuit in terms of richness and sweetness. These cooks enriched the basic flour paste with ingredients such as eggs, butter, and cream and sweetened them with fruits, honey, and sugar.
The Debate of Biscuit Vs Cookies
In general, the British, Australians, South Africans, New Zealanders, Indians, Pakistanis, Sri Lankans, Singaporeans, Nigerians, Kenyans, and the Irish use the British meaning of “biscuit” for the sweet biscuit, the terms biscuit and cookie are used interchangeably, depending on the region and the speaker, with biscuits usually referring to hard, sweet biscuits and cookies for soft baked goods. This sense is at the root of the name of the United States’ most prominent maker of cookies and crackers.
Sri Lankans often refer to anything from a cookie to a wafer to a cracker as a biscuit. However, if you dig deep into where the biscuit came from, or the definition of what a biscuit is, you would be surprised at the different takes each country across the globe has on a simple biscuit.
Although some may see a biscuit and a cookie as a sweet treat that is almost alike, they have quite a distinct difference.
From Basic To Gourmet
Similar to how the biscuit has evolved since its origin, the human palette too has diversified always wanting something new and exciting. While a basic biscuit continues to be enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee, individuals also relish biscuits sandwiched with cream, baked with chunks of chocolate or even infused with spices.
Infusing flavors such as tea, coffee, chocolate and many more into what the Romans made using just flour paste, biscuits are now also used as a ingredient to enhance desserts, in addition to staying true to the classic tea and biscuits combination. A biscuit is not something that compliments a cup of tea or coffee only. Biscuit is can be used as a baseline in cake baking and popsicle. The mouth indulges like Ice cream topping, rich content in some smoothie drink and yogurt.
Biscuits for travel
The need for nutritious, easy-to-store, easy-to-carry, and long-lasting foods on long journeys.Hard biscuits soften as they age. To solve this problem, early bakers attempted to create the hardest biscuit possible. Because it is so hard and dry, if properly stored and transported, will survive rough handling and high temperature. Baked hard, it can be kept without spoiling for years as long as it is kept dry. For long voyages, hardtack was baked four times, rather than the more common two. To soften hardtack for eating, it was often dunked in coffee, or some other liquid or cook into a skillet meal.
