We explore ideas and practices once believed to be true but no longer. Each dead idea is explored in all its glorious eccentricity.

Join us on a fun romp through the history of ideas that didn’t quite stand the test of time.

Our aim is to be both infor ...

Proof goes beyond recipes and cooking to investigate the foods we love (tiki drinks) and don't love (the grain bowl); ask the big questions (where do food cravings come from?); and uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsess ...
