Oldest Written Recipe!
From imgur.com comes an excellent picture of the oldest written recipe. It's a Sumerian clay tablet containing a recipe for beer. It's an excellent photograph; it's so clear that, if you can read Sumerian pictographs, you could read the recipe yourself. You can see the picture here.
