Hi there!

We are Julie and Brittany, the twin sisters behind The Taste Archives. We’re so glad you stopped by!


The Taste Archives is a meeting of food, history, and culture. Have you ever wondered who invented Nutella, or why we go on chocolate egg hunts at Easter? So have we, so we decided to take a dive into food history and share what we find with all of you.

On this blog, you’ll find interesting facts and stories about your favourite foods, recipes, and our adventures in trying new foods and traditions from other cultures. Hopefully there won’t be any spit-takes, but we make no guarantees!

We hope you find something that interests you in our little corner of the internet, and come away with new-found facts to delight (or annoy) your friends and family at your next dinner party.

-Julie and Brittany
