Last month, scientists reported recovering the world’s oldest cooked meal. The 70,000-year-old burned food remnants were found in the Shanidar Cave in Iraq. This is the first evidence of soaking and pounding pulse seeds by Neanderthals, according to Ceren Kabukcu, an archaeobotanist at the University of Liverpool. Archaeologists have even tried to recreate the recipe using seeds from nearby caves. They made a sort of pancake/flatbread with a nutty taste.
