I’ve read Wrangham’s CATCHING FIRE; he makes a very strong case that eating cooked food was the major influence on human evolution from the very beginning of our divergence from the apes.

We are fire apes.

However the discovery of 'creating' fire came about, don't you have to wonder just who figured out that taking 'food' and putting it on top of a fire would make it better?

Was it an accident or planned ?

"Ung drop food on fire. Me still hungry. Me eat anyway. Oh wow, food better now."

Fire apes, that’s funny. Mostly because in 1.8 million years no other member of the “family” has ever mastered fire.
