Started in 1999 by Lynne Olver, a reference librarian, this extensive site provides users with well-organized links to a variety of very helpful food history resources, as well as some original content. The main page traces our relationship with food from it's very beginning (water, ice and salt) to the current state of culinary affairs. Along the way, readers can learn about everything from cattle domestication to croquettes. A menu at the bottom of the main page links to various other useful tidbits including digitized cookbooks, historic menu collections and information about culinary research. The culinary history timeline link found just below the menu, will take readers to a rich set of resources which explore culinary traditions and social history.
