« back to classes page
Food is profoundly social. It defines family traditions and creates the medium for social interactions. Holidays require feast foods. Courtships require dinners out. All gatherings are improved by snacks. The instructor uses a historical model starting seven million years ago with the hunter gatherer tribal units who evolved into omnivores and will describe the subsequent food revolutions that followed, including: the first uses of fire and cooking; the domestication of animals and then plants; the first civilizations; the exchanges from one place to another of foods; and lastly the industrial production of food. All of these are connected to social, technological and cultural developments.
