Posted March 09, 2020 14:08:11The days of your typical dinner with a spoon and fork are long gone.
And it’s not just the people who love to eat their food with forks, but it’s the whole family.
The idea of having a fork in your kitchen is a bit like the one that came from the Romans to give the Romans their own personal style of eating.
The Romans had their own cuisine, which was much different from what we’re used to today.
They did not have the luxury of having two or three plates of food.
They had one plate for their family and three for their private household.
So, they had to be creative in what they had for the family, according to author James Hetfield.
Hetfield says the Romans had a very unique way of preparing food, and it was a bit more of a challenge for them to be prepared for all the different meals they had.
“The Romans could not do what we have today, where we have a very modern way of preparation,” he said.
“And the problem was, we have modern food.
We eat fast food, we eat fast and we don’t know what to prepare.
So it was an opportunity for them, they took advantage of that and created a new way of doing things.”
Hetfields book, The History of Food, takes you through the history of food from the Roman times to the modern day.
It also shows how our ancestors, the Romans, were the first to adapt to the world and learn from their neighbours and the cultures around them.
He says our eating habits have changed over time, and there are many factors behind the change, from genetics to modern nutrition.
“When you look at food today, it is a very different food from how it was 200 years ago,” he explained.
“We don’t have the same genes and nutrition that the Romans did, so it’s a much more complicated way of cooking.
So, I think it’s one of the things that has changed the way we eat today.”
Hettfield also shows you the history and how different food groups were adapted to different times.
“It is a wonderful way of understanding the evolution of food and how it came to be in our food systems,” he told ESPN Clic.
“And that’s what you want to know, how it is today.
