Where Do 5 of your Favorite Foods Come From?


We all love to eat. That’s a straight-up fact. Although we have different foods that we like to put on our bellies, eating is just a habit we can’t get rid of (sleeping too!).

But do you know where and how your favorite foods were invented? Let’s prepare to be surprised as we take a look at 5 of them on your weekly meal plan. 

1. Sandwich: 

The sandwich was invented in 1762 by the Earl of Sandwich, who wanted to avoid getting his hands dirty while playing cards. He had a servant put a slice of meat between two pieces of bread and then he ate it with his hands.

2. Pasta:

The word pasta comes from the Latin word “pasta”, which means “dough”. It is believed that people started eating pasta in Ancient Rome, where it was served as street food.

3. Pizza:

The first pizza was created in 1889 by Raffaele Esposito, who ran a restaurant called Pizzeria di Pietro near Naples, Italy. It was made from bread dough, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese – a recipe that is still used today for this Italian dish!

4. French fries:

The history of french fries is not as long as you might think. It was invented in Belgium and was introduced to the United States by the Belgians who immigrated to the US. The Belgians were the ones who actually called them “French” fries because they thought that their countrymen would not be able to pronounce “french”.

5. Burger:

The history of the burger is not completely clear. The most common theory is that it was invented by a man named Otto, who owned a restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut. He wanted to create a sandwich that would be inexpensive and quick to make so he could keep his customers coming back. 

The first mention of the word burger on record is from 1834. The word was used to describe a ground beef sandwich served with cheese and onions on toast.
