About this course:

A broad survey of important food events and personalities--good and bad--throughout history. Examples include the monumental exchange of foods in 1492 like tomatoes and chocolate from the Old World to the New; the introduction to refined Italian cuisine and table manners (e.g., the fork) into the French court at the spectacular 1533 wedding celebration of the pope's niece, the infamous Catherine de Medici, to the French prince; and Nicolas Appert's 1809 invention of airtight food preservation, winning him the title of "Father of Canning," along with a prize of 12,000 francs.
