What a strange job “Royal Food Taster” must have been. Go ahead and have a bit of everything and lets see if you die… no? Okay, get out of here while all the cool people party on down. The taster’s reward should have at least been the privilege to sit at the table and eat a full meal. But I suppose if that were the case they wouldn’t have “taster” in their name. I wonder if there are people that still fill this role in modern times.
