Welcome to doritosfordinner.com! This blog is a food blog dedicated to my food-ventures (food adventures) and food-views (food reviews). I am no chef, I am just a foodie who simply loves to write and share my food experiences. Come along with me on my food-ventures and food-views.
Food is defined as anything with fat, protein, or carbohydrate, and is mainly used for sustaining growth, repair, and vital processes – as well as for producing energy.
Food is probably the most important thing in any person’s life – in any organism’s life in fact. It is our bloodline that without it, we cease to exist. Historically, the first men secured food by hunting, gathering and planting. However, as man progressed, man developed the food industry.
Around 20,000 BC, People in Europe ate mostly reindeer, mammoth, red deer, wild horses and bison. These foods were mostly just hunted and not yet cultured. Around 1,200 BC, Egyptians learned how to bake bread and make wine. They also learned how to grow vegetables such as beans, leeks and lentils and how to keep animals like pig, sheep and cow. Greeks, on the other hand, also learned how to bake bread and make wine around 400 BC. They also grew vegetables such as onions, beans and garlic.
In the middle ages, the diet of the rich people improved greatly. The rich ate pork, mutton and venison. Aside from that, they also ate swans, herons, blackbirds, ducks and pigeons. On the other hand, the poor ate poorly. They ate bland and monotonous food such as cheese and coarse bread. They also ate porridge which usually lasted them the whole day.
In the 17th Century, the British first started eating food using a fork. By 1891, the first electric oven was sold in the USA. They were released in British market in 1893. Meanwhile, the first electric toaster was invented in 1893 by the British Crompton and Company. Refrigeration was invented in the 20th century.
Restaurants such as Indian and Chinese takeout took off only in the 20th century. Pizza and Hamburger chains also became popular during the same time.
Surprisingly, food delivery preceded the existence of restaurants. Food delivery started during the World War I when the Women’s Volunteer Service delivered food to homes who did not have working kitchens when the bombings started. It was then adopted in Philadelphia by 1954. Nowadays, restaurants have taken food service into a new level with the help of technology. With just a click, you can already have your food ordered by your favorite restaurant.
Food and Men have indeed evolved from the hunting and gathering society of old to the food clicking and ordering ways that we have now.
