There\’s a story about this

And that something was a simple discovery, but – says Wrangham – the most important discovery ever made.

The discovery was cooking. That\’s right, apes learned to cook, and it very quickly turned them into human beings.

Can\’t remember who by but in one of those collections from Amazing or Astounding or some such.

The truly great invention was when the first cavemen added garlic and salt to the stew. It\’s cheffing, not cooking, that was the great breakthrough.

  1. “The truly great invention was when the first cavemen added garlic and salt to the stew. It’s cheffing, not cooking, that was the great breakthrough.”
    Kipling wrote a story about that.

  2. The really great part was when men got the food and women cooked it.
    Since that has stopped your civilization started falling to bits.
