Ingredients Ingredients

Our bewildering array of ingredients was never seen by our ancestors. Until recent times each culture had a limited palate of flavors and textures for cooking, but a phenominal increase of world trade starting in the 16th century took non-native foods to every corner of the world.

High speed transportation, refrigeration and new preservation techniques bring us an ever greater wealth in foods and flavors, and make many of them quite affordable. Our interest in the cuisines of many nations makes it necessary that we understand a great many of them.
