What is Food History?

Did you know that the cooking of food changed our bodies? Did you know that we are the only species who consumes other animal´s breast milk? Did you know that the expression honeymoon comes from the Roman tradition of leaving honey for newlyweds to boost their energy.? Did you know that oranges were originally green? Did you know that the sandwich was created when the Earl of Sandwich asked for meat to be put between two slices of bread to continue playing cards? Or that the can opener was invented 50 years after the can?

All this and much more is explained in Food History, a project which explains how the relationship between food and human beings has evolved throughout history. We will chronologically go over the landmarks of different periods in History (Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Metal Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Middle Ages, Modern Age and Contemporary Era), starting with the moment when fire was discovered and hence became the origin of cookery, to the improvements in agriculture and livestock farming, the first fermentations used in food, etc.

¿Sabías que cocinar los alimentos cambió nuestro cuerpo? ¿Que somos los únicos que quitamos la leche materna a otras especies? ¿Que la expresión “luna de miel” proviene de la costumbre romana de dejar miel a los recién casados para que no les faltaran energías? ¿Qué las naranjas no eran originariamente de color naranja? ¿Que el sandwich nació cuando el Conde de Sandwich pidió la carne entre dos rebanadas de pan para poder seguir jugando a las cartas? ¿O que el abrelatas no se inventó hasta casi 50 años después de la lata?

Todo esto y mucho más se explica en Food History es un proyecto para explicar la evolución de la relación de los alimentos con los seres humanos a lo largo de la historia. Desde el descubrimiento del fuego y con él, el nacimiento de la cocina, al desarrollo de la agricultura y la ganadería, la fermentación de los primeros alimentos, etc... Todo ello haciendo un repaso cronológico de los hitos más importantes de las diferentes épocas de la historia de la humanidad (Paleolítico, Neolítico, Edad de los Metales, Antiguo Egipto, Antigua Grecia, Antigua Roma, Edad Media, Edad Moderna y Edad Contemporánea).

Why Kickstarter?

We have always wanted to upload a project to Kickstarter and we decided to do so when Kickstarter Spain started up a few months ago. We knew the Food History book was perfect for this international community, since the topic it talks about is universal. We hope you enjoy taking part in the kickstarting of this book and its release. Spread the word about your involvement in this great project. You can tell your relatives and friends or whoever you like. We are excited and really proud of having you on our team. Thank you very much!

Siempre hemos querido presentar un proyecto en Kickstarter y cuando hace unos meses abrió Kickstarter España, nos decidimos. Sabíamos que el libro de Food History era el proyecto perfecto para formar parte de esta comunidad internacional, ya que se trata de un tema universal. Esperamos que disfrutes formando parte del proceso de kickstarting de este libro y de su lanzamiento. Puedes difundir tu participación en este maravilloso proyecto entre tu círculo de familiares y amigos o a cualquier persona que quieras. Nos encanta y nos llena de orgullo tenerte en nuestro equipo. ¡Muchas gracias!

 

Why do we need financing?

It´s really simple, we are here for the same reason as everybody else: we need money to make this book project a reality. We have been working hard on the project for several years and it involved many hours of work. Furthermore, we have already had to use our own funds to pay for all of the pre-printing expenses. For all these reasons, the funds we gather will be used to pay for management expenses, investigation, design, layout and printing, as well as creating several advertising videos and creating rewards. Do not hesitate to share this project with all your friends and acquaintances. It´s a small gesture for you, but it means a lot to us! Every time you share this project, it reaches more people and you make it possible for us to reach our goal so that we can finally publish the book. Many thanks to all! 

Es muy sencillo, estamos aquí por el mismo motivo que todo el mundo, necesitamos dinero para hacer realidad la producción de este libro. Llevamos varios años con el proyecto y muchas horas de trabajo a nuestras espaldas. Además, ya hemos tenido que invertir nuestro propio dinero para pagar todos los costes previos a la impresión. Por todo esto, el dinero que recaudemos servirá para pagar los gastos de gestión, documentación, diseño, maquetación e impresión del libro, así como la creación de los diferentes vídeos promocionales y la producción de recompensas. Y por supuesto, no dudéis en compartir este proyecto con todos vuestros amigos y conocidos, es un gesto muy simple para vosotros pero, ¡para nosotros supone mucho! Cada vez que compartes este proyecto haces que llegue a más personas y que sea posible alcanzar el objetivo para que la publicación del libro se haga realidad. ¡Muchas gracias a todos!

Risks and challenges

It has taken us more than two years to get here, after gathering tons of facts and information which we have had to summarize, analyse and interpret.

Once we have reached our goal, we will be able to start to work with the printing house, suppliers and any additional translations that may arise. We have prepared the layout and the reward suppliers to avoid any delivery delays.

We have set longer delivery times so this does not occur, so we hope we can send you your rewards before the expected delivery date. We will keep you updated on the process at all times.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hemos tardado más de dos años en llegar hasta aquí, después de conseguir toneladas de datos e información, que hemos tenido que resumir, analizar e interpretar.

Una vez hayamos alcanzado el objetivo, empezará el trabajo con la imprenta, los proveedores y las traducciones adicionales (si las hubiera). Tenemos preparada tanto la maquetación del libro como los proveedores de las recompensas, para no tener problemas de retrasos con los envíos.

Hemos puesto un plazo de entrega mayor para que esto no ocurra, así que esperamos poder enviaros vuestras recompensas antes de lo previsto. Os iremos manteniendo informados en todo momento sobre el proceso.
