Have you looked at Elizabeth Tebeaux's The Emergence of a Tradition? I did my master's thesis on 17th and 18th century English cookbooks/domestic manuals as technical writing, and found her book very helpful. Granted, it focuses on a specific time period, but it presents a good overview of how the profession got started.
