The first person that added time indications to recipes was the Swiss cook Martino Rossi. But instead of indicating the time in minutes or hours, he used the Lord’s Prayer as a time measurement (for example let the meat cook for two Lord’s Prayers), as he was working for the Pope in the Vatican

On this week’s episode of Things You’re All Welcome For, Love, the Catholic Church: consistency in cooking. You’re all welcome. Love, the Catholic Church.

I’ve also heard of people measuring distances by how many rosaries they had time to say while they were walking.

“Joe’s house is two rosaries west.”
