About Anthrochef, the History of Food

Hi there, I'm Holden Wilson, aka the Anthrochef. I am a chef and an amateur history buff from Chicago, and I write and host the History of Food podcast as well as companion site

What makes us human? Humans are just animals who know how to cook. To say food and cooking drove much of history would be a great understatement, as you'll see over the now more than 20 episodes of this podcast. Follow the history of the human species and of all our civilizations across the ages, learning what they liked to cook and eat, and how those questions of cuisine made them each who they are.

It's a history of the world told from a chef's perspective. Come listen, and come hungry.

I started this project almost three years ago to share my two greatest passions with the internet: cooking and history, and it's grown beyond what I could have hoped.

So, after putting it off for far too long, I've finally decided to start a patreon for those fans who have expressed an interest. If you like the show already and don't have any money to give, feel no guilt whatsoever! But, if you do want to support the show, I am currently an pandemic'd and out of work chef at the moment, just saying!

Thanks so much for enjoying the show either way. I love you all.
