The drive to obtain food has been a major catalyst across all of history, from prehistoric times to the present. For this reason, food offers a deeply insightful lens on human history, shedding new light on the evolution of social and political systems, on cultural interactions, economic empires, human migrations, and more. Now, in Food: A Cultural Culinary History, take an enthralling journey into the human relationship to food in the company of award-winning Professor Ken Albala of the University of the Pacific. With this innovative course, you’ll travel the world discovering fascinating food lore and culture of all regions and eras—as an eye-opening lesson in history as well as a unique window on what we eat today.

Professor Albala's knowledge is vast and his enthusiasm for the subject is palpable. This is not a short course, but studying food throughout history presents a window into the entire evolution of civilization itself. Fun and informative, thirty six 30-minute lectures absolutely flew by. I listened to most on audio and watched just a few on video. Either format works fine. When visuals are required Professor Albala does a nice job of explaining.
