I disagree with "Columbus discovered America". I know they believed it was true then, but we now know the Vikings were here and possibly the Scottish came here while colonizing Nova Scotia. Then possibly sometime after that Columbus made an appearance.

The event they're describing, was known as the St Batholomew's Day Massacre; some of my ancestors were Huguenots (French Protestants) from Lorraine, & they fled to England around this time- I only learnt of this heritage a year ago - it's remarkable, & I like how this doco is exploding old ideas of vegetables being basically non-existant, or merely 'peasant food'.

Danes (Vikings) and possibly Breton fishermen, who told no one to keep their cod fishing areas to themselves. Chinese are conjectured to have reached the West Coast around 1400. Columbus was looking for shorter route to the Indies for a newly reunited Spain since Portugal had a lock on the eastern routes around Africa.

Columbus didn't do anything to the indigenous peoples. Their slaughter came well after Columbus and Columbus himself wrote of his disapproval of how they were treated. The idea he was for subjugation congress from a miss interpretation of his writings. If you read his original writings or other interpretations you'll see Columbus wasn't responsible unless you claim by landing there he was responsible.

Pasta existed long before that myth about Marco polo. The ainchent romans had pasta dishes. It is thought they even got it from the Etruscans. Ofc this documentary must also take the myth around Colombus discovering America as truth as well. There is little proof of even middle age people believe the planet was flat, also a myth, and so on so on. This documentary should be viewed with a huge portion of salt.

SUGAR: A lot of people don't seem to understand that the uses of sugar described are from the kitchens and tables of Kings and noblemen. Most people were peasants who COULD NOT AFFORD SUGAR during the Renaissance. It was a very expensive luxury food that was mostly used to show off an aristocrat's wealth. If you listen, you will notice the names of the Kings and nobles are mentioned. Cookbooks were also primarily for the aristocracy and the people who cooked for them. Most peasants were never taught to read and were far to poor to buy books. They were more available, but still expensive, even after the printing press was invented. At the most, a middle class family might have a Bible.

The literacy rate for the Netherlands seems to have been higher than other parts of Europe. You didn't mention that country before in particular. All of the information available is based more upon estimates, because not so many countries were concerned about collecting such detailed statistics at that point in time. Some cultures value education--and record keeping--more than others. Actually, your diet is BETTER if you do NOT have sugar. NOT being able to afford to buy it is an advantage. Humans can do quite well on quite a variety of diets as long as they get enough vitamins, high quality protein, and essential fatty acids. Sugar and processed foods have been the culprit causing a lot of suffering. http://www.cpb.nl/sites/default/files/publicaties/download/cpb-discussion-paper-228-why-did-netherlands-develop-so-early.pdf http://ourworldindata.org/literacy http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2014/feb/03/indigenous-diets-fight-modern-illnesses

Odd ... since it is known that in the netherlands a great number of middle class people including women could read and write. In merchand families women often kept accounts for their husbands busyness. Also a great deal of letters exist from renaissance and golden age era written by women who were not part of the nobility. Again i guess it has to do with location. when you are in eastern europe which was underdeveloped it is more likely that ppl were illiterate. in the late renaissance early baroque the netherlands were the centre of the world economically and the most prosperous nation on the planet. There are quite a few paintings depicting woman reading or writing who were not nobles but regular burghers. even servant girls. So those percentages cant be applied in all cases. There is much more to it. Often us modern ppl have a weird croocked idea of medieval, renaissance and baroque era. we tend to think that it was all poor and missery, bad food etc. which was not the case. Ppl in history ate pretty well.

Only rich people could afford sugar. Type 2 diabetes was nonexistent among peasants. It was a rich person's disease. The descriptions of sugary food and artistic creations are examples of dinner parties of Kings and noblemen.

My mother remembers loaf sugar and I lived in Morocco for several years where you can get beautiful cones of loaf sugar or sugar tablets for tea and coffee. The cones are wrapped in beautiful purple paper. The tablets are quite large I brought home a lot of the illegal food things from Morocco and now they've all been used. They weren't illegal but things like sugar and their gray salt for cooking and they don't usually use it on the table but I loved the flavor so much that I had a little saucer with gray salt on it for my food! :-)

According to this doc, pasta was first made of corn flour in Europe. THEN Columbus brought corn back from the New World. Anybody understand how this could be?

Stickplayer Indeed, the word "corn" referred, not to maize but to all grains and seeds. The maize was completely covered in "corns" or seeds. The term John Barleycorn refers to booze made with the barley "corns", aka beer and ale. That is the source of the confusion, the term corn was common in English, well before the introduction of maize.

It's amazing to see how these folks regarded sugar, almost as a gift from the gods. I assume that they had no real understanding of the dangers of too much sugar. But I am sure that sugar made most items "more" tasty, as we all have the natural cravings for sweets when encountered.

Dangers of sugar.. sugar is sugar whether it's from a carrot, beet, onion, potato, corn, sugarcane. It's all processed the same way and it's one of only two fuels the brain consumes. Laziness is the danger not sugar. If governments truly cared about healthcare they'd ban PlayStation, television and personal computers.
