Food for the belly - and food for thought (16/05/22 19:33:48)
    #I think it could be plausibly argued that changes of diet are more important than changes of dynasty or even of religion. The Great War, for instance, could never have happened if tinned food had not been invented. And the history of the past four hundred years in England would have been immensely different if it had not been for the introduction of root-crops and various other vegetables at the end of the Middle Ages, and a little later the introduction of non-alcoholic drinks (tea, coffee, cocoa) and also distilled liquors to which the beer-drinking English were not accustomed. Yet it is curious how seldom the all importance of food is recognized. You see statues everywhere of politicians, poets, bishops, but none to cooks or bacon-curers or market-gardeners’#

    Ah, food.
