Whether you live on the sunny coasts of California or on the Fjords of Norway, summer means grilling. The warmer days are perfect for sitting outside, sharing a meal and a few cold ones with friends and family. Barbecuing has become a tradition, but the practice itself changed radically since its early days.
As humanity progressed towards civilization, the cooking and consumption of food were also affected. At first a mere source of nourishment, these activities soon acquired a certain social meaning. It wasn’t only about feeding anymore, being able to throw a good party showed power, wealth, and a certain savoir faire.
