What Did Christopher Columbus Eat

October 12, 2009

Whether or not you believe it was Christopher Columbus who discovered America, there is one thing we can all agree on, the only thing fresh on the menu while at sea was likely caught on the side of the boat. The pantry necessary for Christopher Columbus' journey had to feed a hungry crew for several weeks and endure extreme weather conditions.

Just for fun, we did a little research and figured a boat leaving the Spanish port of Palos de la Frontera in 1492 might be stocked with these delicious staples:

Anchovy on Foodista

Olives on Foodista

Salt Cod on Foodista

Almonds on Foodista

Hard Tack on Foodista
