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 them
affordable to everyone.
