Did you know that the cooking of food changed our bodies? Did you know that we are the only species who consumes other animal´s breast milk? Did you know that the expression honeymoon comes from the Roman tradition of leaving honey for newlyweds to boost their energy.? Did you know that oranges were originally green? Did you know that the sandwich was created when the Earl of Sandwich asked for meat to be put between two slices of bread to continue playing cards? Or that the can opener was invented 50 years after the can?
All this and much more is explained in Food History, a project which explains how the relationship between food and human beings has evolved throughout history. We will chronologically go over the landmarks of different periods in History (Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Metal Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Middle Ages, Modern Age and Contemporary Era), starting with the moment when fire was discovered and hence became the origin of cookery, to the improvements in agriculture and livestock farming, the first fermentations used in food, etc.
