Food timeline! [moved from Not About Food board]

I just found an interesting website that lists the purported discovery dates of foods and recipes, along with links to their descriptions.

Did you know the Chinese are generally credited for creating the first ice creams, possibly as early as 3000 BC?

And that England's King George IV was the first to deem the bbq sauce as "A1?"

    1. Check out their Culinary History Timeline. It's also fascinating.

      1. James Trager's The Food Chronology is great. Unfortunately also out of print and expensive.
