Question: Did you eat today? The answer is probably yes. Do you know where your food came from? We do not think much about the food we eat every day, but many of the delicious tidbits we put in our throat have a fascinating history.
From a Michelin-starred Mesolithic caviar to Caucasian wine, which warmed the Neolithic to the Ice Age, to a taste that had marked evolution, these global favorites have amazing origins.
10 Mesolithic People Ate Fancy Steamed Caviar
Even ancient dishes could be refined, like a 6,000 year old caviar soup from a location near Berlin. The soup, in a ceramic bowl from the year 4300 BC. It was found to be like an old Korean or Thai version and could probably be served in tablecloth restaurants today.
The freshwater carp roe was boiled in a fish broth that was covered with water. Leaves retain all fishy characteristics and also give the plants fresh green aromas. Pork ribs left uncovered in another bowl indicate that Mesoliths ate more chic portions instead of Flintstone's -like chunk of charred meat. 
9 ] The use of vanilla is said to have begun in South America. Recent (as in older) evidence recovered from a 3,600-year-old tomb in Israel fixes the origin of vanilla several thousand years before and 21,000 kilometers (13,000 miles) away. Vanillin compounds were found in three small jars in a Bronze Age burial chamber in Megiddo, an afternoon offer for the three skeletons of gold and silver buried in the tomb.
Researchers say the vanilla orchid reached the Levant via trade routes with Southeast Asia. Vanilla, now the second most expensive spice behind saffron, was even more appreciated and valued in the Bronze Age. So the tomb belonged to a great shot like a royal Canaanite. 
8 A Yellow River Artifact Ends the Noodle Dispute
The emergence of noodles has been hotly debated. Some say they are a Chinese invention, others fight Italian or even Arab roots. Before 2005, the earliest known noodles belonged to the Eastern Han Dynasty (circa 25-220 AD), but a much older find suggested that the birthplace of the noodle is actually in China.
Archeologists at the Lajia site on the Yellow River recovered 4,000-year-old bowl of noodles, accidentally (for science and noodle history), saved by a catastrophic flood. The pot contained a bouquet of 50 cm long yellow strands, which, in contrast to modern variants, consisted of millet flour flour. 
7 Wine comes from Europe, but not from Italy  The world 8,000 years ago came out of an ice age. And as the temperatures got warmer, the Neolithic inhabitants of Georgia discovered how to make wine. It may be the oldest wine in the world, for while the Chinese brewed grape-based alcoholic beverages 1,000 years ago, it was not pure wine. The Georgian population between 6000 and 5800 BC
And it was a brilliant new invention to be kept in another great recent invention, pottery glasses, that began about 9,000 years ago. Unfortunately, the old winemakers did not contain tree resin, a well-known preservative that appeared in wines a few hundred years later. 
6 People Made Bread for Agriculture
A pile of nondescript black spots, only a few millimeters away, a Natuur hunter-gatherer camp in Jordan has proved to be the oldest bread in the world.
They are several millennia older than the second oldest bread and the agrarian revolution. The tiny, charred remnants are the crunchy remnants of bread on the bottom of your toaster. Only they are 14,000 years old. Or about 4,000 years older than the Levantine agriculture.
The Natufians roaming the Black Desert searched for wild cereals, tubers and grains such as barley, wheat, oats and einkorn. They turned these ingredients into unleavened flat breads, cooked on stones or ashes.  But it was a long, lengthy process, so the bread was probably reserved for parties and events.
5 Many thanks to the Sicilians for creating the culinary symbol of Italy
It was thought that Italian wine was produced around 1200 BC. It was probably the tasteful consequence of Greek colonization. Some terracotta vessels from the Late Copper Age from a Sicilian limestone cave on Monte Kronio date back to the fourth millennium BC. Back.
In the storage jars archaeologists found 6,000-year-old tartaric acid, also called tartar, the most important acid component of the grapes. It is a result of fermentation and a sign of winemaking. This direct evidence trumps many earlier, potentially vile discoveries, with only the cumbersome evidence that many grapes were grown. 
4 The first people to use chocolate (were not Central American)
The Central American Olmecs and Aztec civilizations "invented chocolate" when they were already inventing 1900 BC. Made spicy, bitter cocoa-based drinks.
At least the scientists thought, but some newly released, 5,300-year-old pottery brings the birthplace of cocoa to Ecuador. Here, the first Theobroma cacao trees decorated the earth and here people used their seeds for culinary and ceremonial purposes.
The discovery was considered surprising when researchers discovered that Mayo Chinchipe people living in the Amazon looked suspiciously like Mayan cocoa pots, then looked inward and realized they were also storing cocoa were used.  These ships were found Cocoa was used both in houses and in graves as a ritual sacrifice for the dead and as a powdered food to possibly drink a hot cocoa.
3 Bone marrow made us who we are
Most people consider bone marrow as waste food, like offal. However, this unregulated food source helped humanity to reach the top of the food chain.
Our early ancestors Homo thrust them from the bones of animals at least two million years ago. Homo habilis et al. used "Oldowan tools" made by ironing together rocks to create a sharp edge to reach the precious marrow.  The brain fats and protein in it helped early humans build larger brains with the ability to make better tools and tools, including the Large Hadron Collider.
It is also possible that the practice of marking bones has distinguished human hands from monkey hands, as the forces and dexterity required to crack bones added an additional evolutionary variable.
2 Native Americans had huge jerky-making camps
Native Americans ate a kind of beef-like thing called Pemmican and dedicated their production to camps, like a pemmican factory that was discovered in a bison hunting facility in Montana, the was inhabited in the pre-European days around 1410-1650. The site of Kutoyi consists of more than 3,500 stone features and served as a bison processing center in the pre-European conquest centuries.
The production of pemmican was a labor-intensive process in which the meat was first cut into strips and dried. It was then smashed into tiny pieces with stones.  For consistency and a caloric boost, it was mixed with fat, which was made by breaking the bones into fragments, boiled, and then skimming off the upwardly floating bone fat. The result was a high-calorie, portable food that did not quickly spoil.
1 Dogs became part of the kitchen thousands of years ago
In some cultures, dogs have been on the menu for thousands of years. In an ancient Chinese tomb, discovered in 2010, dog meat accompanied the deceased into the underworld.
The Xian Tomb in Shaanxi Province contained a 20 cm high, 2,400 year old, sealed, bronze cooking vessel. Inside, researchers found remains of old bone soup, though the oxidation had made the contents and container green and mysterious.
The analysis revealed that 37 bones belonged to a male dog that was less than a year old. Together with the puppy soup an airtight bronze container contained wine. It is quite luxurious for a fatality, suggesting that the deceased was a landowner or an important military officer.
