Ngadjonji rainforest aboriginal people and their technology of food processing.
Cherene Trimble's insight:

Not only does this incoropate the native land owners for a cross cultural perspective, but talks about the direct relationship between food and technology.  This site also will make for discussion and comparisions to now and then (4.3).

A very valuable site to show the incredible inventiveness required by Australia's Indigenous people to survive in a harsh environment. The rest of the site also contains a wealth of information of these particular peoples and how they adapted their environment (besides food processing).

Heston Blumenthal's Philosophy

Listen to Chef Heston Blumenthal's philosophy as 'Eating is a multisensory experience'.
Cherene Trimble's insight:

This is Chef Heston Blumenthal in an audio of his philosophy on eating/food.  I see that using this may help students consider the process in changing the taste to make it more appealing and how this has occured over time. This has the potentional to explore why and how food have changes/developed. Just stop to consider what our parents or their parents ate to what we eat? No Big M back then.  I personally love Chef Heston, his love of science and cooking would bring about some great experiments in the classroom and really allow for some creative and higher order thinking.

Again, this type of site is a real 'farm to fork' type of site. My kids don't really know where their food comes from or how it gets to be what they eat. This site could be useful in teaching both food related strands to students of all ages.

Food Timeline: food history reference & research service
Cherene Trimble's insight:

In learning about food in the past, present and future a timeline would be great for keeping track of who ate what and when.  The usefull resource would help students understand the simplexity to the completity of food throughout history.  The site also includes recipes that would work within a classroom.  I feel this site would generate a lot of discussion on why we no longer have a 'catch and eat' or 'pick to plate' style of diet.  In looking at this talks would generate on how food is processed and prepared and the impact on its nutritional value

I agree that this incredible food timeline site would generate heaps of discussion. There is even a free "ask a question" service, even though the information given is super detailed. It even had the history of Turducken, which our family had for Christmas this year. What a great source for information and research!

What a great site! I love the history of food processing and can think of many exciting ways to explore this in the classroom. I was thinking it's a shame there's not a video with the timeline but wouldn't that make a great class project? Or looking up some of the old ads with the Jolly Green Giant and Pillsbury Doughboy. Thanks for sharing this!

Andrea Taylor's curator insight, March 5, 2013 7:25 AM

This article provides a brief insight into how advances in food technologies are being used to enable producers and processors to keep fresh food lasting longer in our supermarkets. This resource gives the teacher the opportunity to explore this new content with relevance to the Technology curriculum with students (middle/upper primary) by exploring how fresh produce systems have been transformed throughout the decades because of food technology.
