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 - and
now high speed transportation brings every corner of the world to us.
Understanding the cultures these ingredients are associcated with, and
learning to use them enriches our lives.
