A History Of The Humble Meatball

For most Americans, meatballs are something to put on spaghetti. The humble beginnings of meatballs are actually derived from pure meanness - peasants to mix meat with fruits, grains and nuts to make them last longer and go further. In fact, one of the first meat used to make meatballs was Peacock, way back in ancient Rome. Today, meat can be mixed with breadcrumbs, onions, spices and even eggs.

So meatballs come from Rome, then? In Albania, the pellet include feta cheese
    Chinese dumplings contain mostly
beef, and the largest can vary in size from 5 cm - 10 cm, which is simply huge!
    In Finnish foods using reindeer meat is not known.
    In Germany, a variety of meatball is made with anchovies or herring. EUGH!
    In Scotland, "fagot" is the name given to a type of spicy meatballs pig heart, liver and belly fat.
    The worlds largest meatball is currently 101kg set in an Italian restaurant in New Hampshire in October 2009
    The pellet of the worlds most expensive should be made from Japanese Kobe beef, which is US $ 30 per pound.
    In 2005, someone managed to 10.1 lbs meatballs in 12 minutes.

The truth is that we can not be sure of the exact pellets, since probably the origin of the "leftovers" of cooked meat dish that had been hand cut, hit or bitten by a primitive method. Meat in general, however, was rare and preserved for the rich. Languages
​​across the world will not provide clues to the origin of the pellet. The word kofta variations that are used by the Middle East, India and Central Asia, probably comes from the Persian word KOOFTEH - meaning the meat bashed. Persia KOOFTEH spread throughout the Middle East and Mughal India.

In the 2nd to 9th centuries, the Arabs have dominated much of the world that Islam spread through the Middle East their food were brought along too.

History also teaches us that in the golden age of Spain, where Andalusia was an Arab area, the Arabs brought food to the Spanish tables. Among the dishes described the find recipes for meatballs and triangular pieces of dough fried in coriander oil. The Spanish word for meatballs is albondigas, similar to the Arabic word Al-BUNDUQ means hazelnut - so maybe they were quite small meatballs, indeed.

The first writer of ancient Rome, Apicius - mentions rounded patties. Curious, because the pig is the most prevalent today. Ultimately, however, it seems that the meatballs in other parts of the world may have developed independently, as in China, where the wide variety of pellets is said to resemble the power of a lion - or Sweden, where the meatballs are much smaller and usually presented as a luxury product served in cream and LIGNON canned berries.
