The Food Timeline

Did you know that Fig Newton's have been around since 1891, and were most likely invented in Newton, Massachussets? Or that the Yukon Gold potato didn't exist until 1981? I learned both of these tidbits from the Food Timeline, created by a reference librarian named Lynne Olver who hails from Whippany, NJ. Olver and co. also answer culinary questions on request...so far, they claim to have responded to 16,476 such queries.

I've visited the site a bunch of times during various culinary research projects, but it was just today I got the bright idea of telling you about it! Silly me.

Hey, I'm new to this blog, (and "blogging" all together), but, it looks good.
Are you going to tell us how the VFN meal was???
