10 Inventions That Changed Food History

Google Rank
Food history is a combination of slow, gradual evolution and sudden disruption. The course of food history can be changed by climate change or war, but it can also be changed by innovation from enterprising individuals. Who "invented" sliced bread? How did the microwave oven come to be? And what genius gave us the spork? Justin Dodd answers those questions and more in the latest episode of Food History.

Food History is a series from Mental Floss where we dive deep into the culinary stories that lead to the food on our plates. If you have an idea for a dish, cooking technique, or cuisine that you’d like us to explore in a future episode, tell us in the comments.
