A timeline of food

The site also has links to cookbooks and recipes (referring to date of publication rather than conception—hence the arrival, only last year when the New York Times found out about ’em, of Kool-Aid pickles)

The Food Timeline shows which foods were invented when. Ok, not invented, exactly, but first eaten. A tasting menu:

Pretzels, 5th century AD.
Pork and beans, 1475.
Foie gras, 1st century AD.
Croissants, 1686.
Chop suey, 1896.
Popcorn, 3600 BC.
Swedish meatballs, 1754.
