Food timeline

nbruce writes “The Morris County Library, 30 East Hanover Ave. Whippany, NJ 07981, has an extremely detailed Food Timeline

“created in response to students, parents and teachers who frequently asked our librarians for help locating food history and period recipes. Information is checked against standard reference tools for accuracy–The Oxford Companion to Food (Davidson), The Cambridge World History of Food (Kiple & Ornelas), Larousse Gastronomique (New American Edition, Lang [1988] and Revised/Updated English edition [2001]), The Encyclopedia of American Food & Drink, (Mariani), Food in History (Tannahill), History of Food (Toussaint-Samat), and other sources as needed.â€?

The site was created in 1999, and as of December 2003 they have answered approximately 4,000 queries on food.”
