The history of the culinary arts is massive and complex because it started when humanity developed, for people have always needed to eat. As populations of people became more developed over time, food became more of a celebration and leisure item as well, and it did not just focus strictly on eating to live. People have also developed the craft of cooking, and some spend their lives cooking delicious meals for others.
As cultures mixed, the culinary arts became even more multi-faceted as ideas mixed together; people came from all around the world to blend cooking techniques, flavors, and ingredients to form the extremely unique food and food service that we have today. Both world and American culinary arts history hold their own treasures, and people have worked diligently to evolve the culinary arts into something spectacular and helpful to the human population.
