42 Few others have taken forays into Atlantic African culinary history. Besides its impacts on farming, Africanists have not paid much attention how servitude abetted the development of food consumption patterns. 43 It is hard to determine changes in food production before the nineteenth century, but by the 1840s domestic slavery revolved around farming. 44 Slaves and offspring of mixed free-slave marriages grew food with free wives in outlying ﬁelds.
