Food History

One great approach to discovering history with your kids is to go through the history of food.

I've put together a list of great resource links on the history of British food at my website Best British Food. Right now it focuses on prehistoric food, but I'll be adding more later. Some of these links are fabulous finds - I was really surprised at how much free food history information there is out there. One of the sites is even designed for teaching, but not in the conventional classroom sense. Who knew there was so much to learn about prehistoric food!

Let me know what you think. Have you used food to teach history and culture? It's a favorite at my house.

Thanks for the links. We've been doing a lot of food history lately! Mainly American, using The History Chef! Here's the link: http://lincolnslunch.blogspot.com/

It focuses on the Presidents, but covers major events as well, like the Boston Molasses Disaster of 1919.

Peace and Laughter,
Cristina
