Curious when people first began eating asparagus, domesticating chickens, or preparing sushi? Click over to the Food Timeline for a fascinating way of looking at the order in which foods were introduced to our diets. Dates stretch between 17,000 BC and 2004, so there are plenty of discoveries to be made. Click on any food for a link with more information about it -- in some cases, there are also recipes to prepare the foods. Which would be perfect if you wanted to create a menu from the 1500s for a historical society meeting, or one from the 1800s for a book club, or a 1920s speakeasy evening. Be sure to click to the bottom of the timeline page and look at the Hungry For More section if any of these ideas appeal to you! There are lots of great Halloween ideas up now too.
