Timeless foods

Heather says:

In an effort to “keep learning exciting” teachers often turn to food and there comes a time when almost every student has to research period foods for a school project.  Maybe one of your more eccentric friends will decide to host a Victorian Era tea or 50’s Night.   Where do you turn to find out what they ate actually ate in Medieval Europe?  Does your fourth grader need to bring in a food from the first Thanksgiving?

Check out FoodTimeline.org, bookmark it, and keep it handy.  You will thank me when it comes time to send in something from the Oregon Trail.

    Really cool. I bookmarked it.
    When I was teaching a boring novel set in India to my sophomores, we made and ate Indian food. Many of them were surprised how much they liked it. Unfortunately, the food really was meant to simply spice up a boring unit because the characters in the novel subsisted on rice. . .ah well!

    I did a medieval meal for a high school english class….most of the food was disgusting, but my classmates at least tried to eat it!
