Kickoff Session Sneak Peek: “From Raw to Cooked: A Food History”

Posted in: Uncategorized

Track: Arts & Sneaky Science 

Every human culture includes cooking – this is how it began. Cooking makes food more digestible and kills off bacteria, and every human society in the world does it. 

Cooking is ubiquitous in humans. All cultures, from the Inuit of the frozen Arctic to the hunter-gatherers of sub-Saharan Africa, are sustained by food that has been chemically and physically transformed by heat. It was an incredible invention. Cooking makes food more digestible and kills off the bacteria that cause food poisoning. But where and when it started is hotly debated. You might call it a food fight.
