If you’ve followed an old link to this site you may be a little surprised (and disappointed) with what you’ve found here. If you’ve come from Lynne Olver’s food timeline, I apologise, but because Lynne passed away in 2015 I have been unable to contact the food timeline site to have the link updated.
This site does have some posts about food history, but my Australian food timeline now has its own address. You’ll find it here. The easiest way to find specific information is to use the search function on that site.
