It might seem impossible to believe that we have a lot in common with a peasant toiling in a medieval field at the turn of the second millennium, or a Venetian pirate as plague rampages through your city’s canals, or a young girl on trial for witchcraft, or a chef who cooked for princes and kings. But here’s the thing, everyone has to eat, and that primal need has been one of the major forces in world history since we gathered around the promethean fire. That’s what we’re exploring in this season’s podcast - how food has shaped who we have become. Super casual, right? One thousand years of history, explored plate first.

My two favorite things had a baby...
...and that baby is this podcast!! As a history major and food lover, this podcast is the perfect mix for me! Claire gives such an interesting perspective on the topic of food and its importance and significance to people of the past and present. I also love that there will be a guest and a recipe every week! Keep up the great work so far, I can't wait for more episodes!
Great combination of food and history
Simply put, this podcast is a ton of fun to listen to! Claire Thomas is a great host that confidently builds a compelling history of food with the perfect recipe / guest host pairing for each episode. I found myself learning about history through a new lens and immediately queuing up the next one!
Great mix of topics and stories
This podcast is perfect to listen to while making dinner! I'm not much of a cook but listening to this while preparing a meal makes me feel a bit more inspired and capable. The mix between the history of food with the perspective of those currently in the industry makes it a very interesting and easy listen.
