For 99% of human history, people took their food from the world around them. They ate that they could find and then moved on.Then 10 000 years ago or for 1% of human history people learned to farm the land and control their environment. What do we eat ?
The kind of food we eat depends on which part of the world we live in, or which part of our country we live in. For example, in the south of China they eat rice, but in the north they eat noodles. In Scandinavia, they eat a lot of herrings, and the Portuguese love sardines. But in central Europe, away from the sea, people don´t eat so much fish, they eat more meat and sausages. In Germany and Poland there are hundreds of different kinds of sausages.
How do we eat ?
In North America, Australia, and Europe there are two or more courses to every meal and people eat with knifes and forks. In China there is only one course, all the food is together on the table, and they eat with chopsticks. In parts of India and the Middle East people use their fingers and bread to pick up the food. Where does our food come from ?
Noiwadays it´s possible to transport food easily from one part of the world to the other. We can eat we like, when we like, at any time of the year. Our bananas come from the Carribean or Africa ; our rice comes from India or the USA ; our strawberries come from Chile or Spain. Food is very big business. But people in poor countries are still hungry, and people in rich countries eat too much.
