Food That Changed History

Spices have changed not only the pattern of food, but also the map of the world.
Pepper, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon. Who would have thought that these spices, now so easily found in any market, have already been responsible for a real revolution? Six centuries ago, these spices were used to flavor and conserve food and also in medicine. Rarely, they were sold at a price of gold, and in order to achieve them, great expeditions were carried out - which eventually changed the world map.
Taken by Portugal with the beginning of the maritime discoveries.
other countries later, followed Portugal with contribution.
