The Food Timeline

If you're a Foodie and historian, you'll be delighted with the info at The Food Timeline. I've had this link for years now but refer to it often and did so again this morning when an armored D desired to know what knights ate for breakfast. BTW, did you know they had pancakes and waffles in medieval Europe?

For your enjoyment, here's a Foodie quote from the ever-quotable Shakespeare:

Touchstone: No, by mine honour, but I was bid to come for you.
Rosalind: Where learned you that oath, fool?
Touchstone: Of a certain knight that swore by his honour they were good pancakes and swore by his honour the mustard was naught: now I’ll stand to it, the pancakes were naught and the mustard was good, and yet was not the knight forsworn.

[As You Like It Act I, Scene II]

Thanks for that link! That'll come in handy on down the road, I just know it. :-)
