Food Timeline

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.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your Designer/Architect
as well as your audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. Your blog's new "Word Verification"
process is a good idea but a dyslexic
person's nightmare...

Interesting site. I always thought pecan pie was early america food. It is a staple almost in the south.
