Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

What an interesting bit of history in the following link!

The Pirate Who Penned the First English-Language Guacamole Recipe



William Dampier’s food-writing firsts included the use of the words “barbecue” and “chopsticks.”


How about tortilla? Or soy sauce? Yep, same dude....

He even sparked the true story behind The Mutiny on the Bounty!

Ahhhh, you gotta love this kind of history!

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Hello interupt42, yep..... Cool was the thought I had too.... the whole story just has so many interesting twists in it; and offers that missing understanding of what "sparked" the whole breadfruit & Tahiti voyage in the first place...

Breadfruit.... hah.... I have seen these giant trees all over the Caribbean region. Especially the old English places, like Barbados for example.

And to think all of this was experienced by him "hiding" from the long arm of the kings lawmen on the high seas!

What an adventure, well worthy of a epic movie story by the likes of Spielberg or similar level of expertise.

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Greetings hiddenNZ; wow! That description/recipe/menu sounds pretty darn good, made me hungry even!

I tried breadfruit once, but it was just plain breadfruit, cooked so a tourist could at least say they tried it! Ha!

As it was plain breadfruit, I found it a bit bland, and starchy for lack of a better word. But still quite edible though.

Your way, sounds pretty darn good! You a kiwi by any chance?

Heya prav,yep I'm a European kiwi with a Samoan upbringing. Breadfruit can be bland,hence the coal.cooking,whole fruit. Green bananas steamed open and slow simmered in coconut cream,not milk (important) and onions added to cook through, sometimes with a little curry powder....I love it. I have a few Samoan recipes that would make you hungry. 👍

what an incredible article, thank you for that bit of information. I am a chef, and have been cooking for a very long time. I always love finding tidbits of history like this, I find it so fascinating, and would love to try my hand at some of these old school dishes myself....

Cool, as an avid Atlas Obscura reader myself I read this yesterday.


However, the lack of authentic pirate speak such as "aargh" and "shiver me timbers" has me doubting its authenticity!
