    I want to introduce everyone to the Food Timeline, a research website created and edited by Lynne Olver, a reference librarian in New Jersey. The site has been around for ten years (I’m a late arrival!), and has answered over 20,000 food questions to date, covering everything from the origins of macaroni salad (including a recipe from 1916!) to cashews, insects…the list goes on, starting about 300,000 years ago with shellfish. The timeline is actually a vast, linked network of history, published articles, and recipes, and it is an absolute gold mine for curious culinarians. I find myself clicking around the site for hours–who knew reading about ice could be so interesting?
