A Look At Food History

It is something that we need every day. We sure cannot go without a day without it. But unlike air that we take in unconsciously, this one we take in because we need to and we feel like having it. This is about food and food has been around for ages. Without food, people will die of hunger and when hunger strikes, people just do not feel well. And so they take in food.

Because food is something that people take in everyday, they have tried their very best to create wonderful dishes. From the most simple to the most complex, people have worked their way with food so as to create variety. Eating the same kind every day does not appeal that much and so with variations, people get to enjoy what they take in. There are favorites, of course, but even eating your favorite day in and day out is not going to be enjoyable. In fact, you may even declare it not your favorite food anymore after two days of eating that – and just that and nothing else.

One of the authors who write about food, Kathleen Collins, has offered the market a new book and she calls it Watching What We Eat. In this book, we get to learn not only about the food that we take in but we actually get to learn more on the history of food through the television shows that we have had. Most television shows that are about food mostly are cooking shows however there are also variations which includes people going to various places sampling things and seeing how food is made. Like maybe how a person from this place can whip up a wonderful concoction by just using his (or her) Bosch mixer.

Indeed, this book would be a very interesting read. After all, it is very likely that most of us had grown up watching television cooking shows and being amazed at how a variety of ingredients could be put together to create a wonderful dish that will not only delight your taste buds but also be a delight for your eyes. And because they look wonderful, you take out your Bosch universal mixer and try out just how well you can make one yourself right in your own home. Your mother has just given you that cooking equipment when she found it at a Bosch mixer sale and you cannot wait to try it.

For Tricia, the home is the best place to be.
