Welcome to my blog! Here I'll be combining two of my great loves: food and history.
I love the fact that throughout time, people have always tried new foods or ways to make their usual foods interesting. Food is the core identity of culture, and each food or dish has a story of how it made its way to you. I hope to dig into those stories to learn more and to share them with you, as well as to discover how they're translated into today's tastes.
I plan to focus each entry on a specific item, whether it be an ingredient, spice, dish, or culinary technique. I welcome suggestions so if you've ever used something in your kitchen and wondered about how it's evolved into what we know today, please comment!
