When man rubbed two sticks together and created fire for the first time this, in my opinion, was what started our ascent to becoming the dominant species on this planet.
Suddenly being able to cook meat made man realise there was more to life than surviving, there was pleasure to be had.
Imagine how excited those first tribes would have been to finally being having hot meals, eventually discovering that by adding herbs such as wild thyme or rosemary would enhance further this new found joy.
Two million years later we are still striving to make our dishes tastier and find new flavours.
Food brings people together and is ever present in our lives. Sayings such as the kitchen is the heart of the home, a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, a full tummy makes for a happy bunny, are all so true.
What makes us different from the animal kingdom is that we don’t just survive, we live.
