1869 Mary Mallon was born. 'Typhoid Mary' was an infamous household cook who was responsible for major outbreaks of typhoid in the New York City area in 1904, 1907, and 1914. She was immune to typhoid herself, but was a carrier of the bacillus, and spread it wherever she worked as a household cook (see also March 27, 1915).

1880 Sir John Boyd Orr was born. A Scottish scientist and nutrition expert, he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to eliminate world hunger.

1923 Nancy Green died. Nancy Green was hired to represent and demonstrate Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix. At the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the exhibit was so popular that police had to control the crowds at the Aunt Jemima booth.

FOOD TRIVIA QUIZ    (new DAILY questions)

The product we know today came into being in 1902, but it had existed in similar forms for generations.  During the Christmas season of 1902, packaging became an important factor.  It was designed with a string attached to it so it could be hung as a Christmas tree ornament.  In total, there have been 37 different varieties, currently there are 22.  More than 40 million packages of these are sold each year, and they are exported to 17 countries.  They are turned out at the rate of 12,000 per minute, and nearly 6,000 miles of string are used on the packages.  Poet-philosopher Christopher Morley wrote a poem named for them.

A FOOD LIFE

"There are those who say that a life devoted to food -- cooking it, eating it, writing about it, even dreaming about it -- is a frivolous life, an indulgent life.  I would disagree.  If we do not care what we eat, we do not care for ourselves, and if we do not care for ourselves, how can we care for others?"
Fictional cookery writer Hilary Small, in episode 6, series 2 of 'Pie In the Sky'
