About the "Culinary History" posts

Foods often have too many rules attached to them.  Recently, I’ve been trying to look at food and really understand what it is at it’s core. Once culinary traditions no longer hold sway over a particular food I am amazed at how many other ways there are to create a similar food.  My goal with posts labeled "Culinary History" is to empower home chefs to create original cuisine by:

- exploring the history behind a dish
- explaining what I believe to be the core components of the dish
- demonstrating a traditional version of the dish
- finding other cultures or recipes that have made this dish their own
- give ideas and recipes for completely new versions of the dish

I hope deconstructing these dishes helps give you some good ideas of your own.
