International Gastronomic Heritage

The study of gastronomy has been approached from very different angles, however this study will be carried out in four stages within History: Ancient Age , Middle Ages , Modern Age and Contemporary Age. During the course of history, man has manifested the characteristics of his nature. Man has evolved and with it his diet. For example, at first she lived in the treetops, later she looked for a place to stay, a way to dress and eat. The ways of eating were changing since as it evolved they ate in a better way: they had times to eat, utensils, tablecloths, dishes, etc. The refinement came gradually.

Old age
