TOPSY-TURVY TOMATOES MAKE TARTE TATIN
Most of us are familiar with pineapple upside-down cake, but where did the idea of serving something upside down come from?

The concept of culinary "upsidedownness," according to food historian Alan Davidson, seems to have a long history. A 13th-century Arabic cookbook has an entire chapter devoted to "fried, marinated and turned (as in 'inverted')" dishes, including the still-popular rice-meat-and-vegetable dish "maqluba," which translates as "upside down." In Central Europe, apples cooked in a skillet with a pancake batter on top and then inverted for serving are a centuries-old tradition.

Whoopie For Ice Cream!
People have been screaming for ice cream for a very, very long time.

Food historians believe that ice cream may date back to first-century China, where it spread to the Middle East. But in the Western world, the term "ice cream" is first found in print on an English menu from 1672, where it was listed as a dessert served to royalty at the Feast of St. George.
