There's alot to learn about how our food evolved, and 'Food History' looks like the novel guide to lay down the answers to several of these fascinating food questions, anomalies and more. The Spanish team, Papila, behind the new stylistic guide let us in on how the Earl of Sandwich's desire to continue playing cards resulted in a piece of meat to being put between two slices of bread, aka the sandwich, and the Ancient Greeks began our three meals a day habit, and oranges were believe it or not once ... green.
No cooking pot gets left unturned in the chronological culinary landmarks of time skipping through Palaeolithic to Neolithic, Metal Age to Middle Ages, finishing with the Contemporary Era in a fun and pictorial style.
