A big part of my historical interests revolves around food. Food is the great uniter of people from all over the world. Even though cuisines, ingredients, and dishes differ from culture to culture, everybody has to eat, and there are similarities across cultures. Exploring foodways is a great way to learn about a historical period or culture. One can learn about every aspect of life, political, social, and economic. We have a lot of fun trying new foods and recipes.
There are several channels on Youtube that take viewers through foods and recipes of different historical periods. One is Tasting History With Max Miller. On Tuesdays, Max cooks an historic recipe and tells the story of the culture. The videos are very interesting and are only 15-18 minutes long. There's not enough time to get bored. https://www.youtube.com/c/TastingHistory/videos
