Living in London England back in the seventeenth century was very different for people than it is today. From there kitchens of low wall ovens and hanging kettles, to the discrimination of people and there class and the differences in which they were forced to eat to the varied ways recipes were used and recorded. Today in the states and in London as well technology has made our ways of cooking with conventional ovens and microwaves much simpler. We now have many options and varieties of food and drinks to choose from even though for some they are still labeled by there class be it high or low and now even middle which is unfortunate. Recipe books are published daily and a new cook book seems to be out and more popular than the one before.
Therefore, slaves combined familiar crops with salvaged foods and scraps to develop an entirely new cuisine. But it is important to understand that long before it was a cultural symbol and source of pride, soul food was simply a means of survival. Slaves also began to supplement the meager rations they received from their owners with discarded animal parts including pig’s stomach and pig’s intestines to name a few. There was nothing left
But some slaves worked in the houses and were nannies, cooks, or did the laundry. If you were a boy like me, you might be a stable boy and you would have to take care of the horses. You would be treated better like the people who worked in the house were. There were other slaves too. They would have to work for the government, or a business, or factory, or run a store.
The history of African and West Indian culture is reflected in many of the recipes and food traditions that remain popular today. The southern United States, where the slave population was greatest, has developed a cooking culture that remains true to the African-American tradition. As Doris Witt notes in her book Black Hunger (1999), the "soul" of the food refers loosely to the food's origins in Africa. Some common soul foods include intestines (chitterlings), pork chops, fried porgies, potlikker, turnips, watermelon, black-eyed peas, grits, hushpuppies, and pancakes. Today, many of these foods are eaten by African Americans only on holidays and special occasions.
Now, if you read it out loud, “IT’S NOT JUST A BURRITO.” and then proceed to read this part really fast, “It’s a foil-wrapped, hand-crafted, local farm supporting, food culture changing cylinder of deliciousness.” They are attempting to get people pumped by reading that sentence because they want us to see that they stand out from the crowd, that they aren’t just the typical restaurant these days, that they are attempting to go back to the way things used to be with farming, meat preparation, and how we treated the earth. Our country went from independent farming to factory farming, and at that point our foods, environment, and health has changed significantly. Chipotle wants the world to know that they value old-fashioned traditional ways of farming, and in some ways are supporting the economy because the farmers who have gone out of business due to “factory farming” were left in the dust. In Chipotle’s ad, they use a piece of notebook paper with tape, which probably means it’s
“They send me to eat in the kitchen when company comes” (2-4 Langston Hughes) refers to the slave owner instructing them to eat away from “company” to avoid conflict with their prejudice and social standing. “But I laugh, And eat well, and grow strong” (5-7 Langston Hughes)
The Classical Brigade System was more extensive in Escoffier’s time. Consisting of technology, salaries, and taxes paid to employees, The Brigade System has turned into something new. The Modern Brigade System Today, the Brigade system has changed in many ways. Education, woman, technology, and money. Education Young cooks, before entering the kitchen, are able to get an education in cooking and ask the chef very detailed questions if they needed.
Life in the Middle Ages Food: Food in the Middle Ages was very different from what we ate today because the life of the people back then was governed by the laws of the feudal system and hence what a typical peasant ate was very different from what royalty ate. The day to day diet of a typical middle ages peasant consisted mainly of rye or barley bread and pottage, a kind of stew made of vegetables, grains and on some occasions, fish or meat. Dairy products such as milk and cheese and meats such as beef, lamb and pork were also part of a peasant’s diet. Aside from all of these other foods, a peasant usually ate whatever he grew. A peasant would normally have two meals a day, although it was changed to three meals a day in the later stages of the Middle Ages.
Some dishes that are very common are casamiento, which consists of a mixture of rice and beans, and pupusas, which consists of cheese, beans, or chicharron, and sal picon, which consists of rice, beef, and cilantro. These dishes, although they may be filling if enough is provided, do not contain the proper amount of nutrients needed for the body. Members of a nuclear family in El Salvador are considered to be underneath the head of the household, which is usually the father. The head of household usually either makes the important decisions or plays a very big role in the decision. Children are expected to show respect to their elders under all circumstances.
Ancient Greece and Rome Ancient Greece and ancient Rome have quite a few similarities, but also have quite a few differences ranging from what they wore to how they governed the population. Both began as city-states. Ancient Greeks liked to wear wool and linen garments with cloaks and sandals whereas the Romans favored togas and tunics, but like the Greeks they enjoyed to wear cloaks and sandals. They both ate things such as wheat, barley, grapes, various meats and cheeses (walton). Many Greeks lived on small farms, but were unable to support themselves because of bad agricultural practices and larger estates had to take over.
