Q:  What was James Beard’s earliest memory of food and how old was he?

A: James Beard’s earliest memory of food was the Lewis and Clark Exposition of 1905 when he was just two years old. Beard in his memoir recalls: “I was taken to the exposition two or three times. The thing that remained in my mind above all others — I think it marked my life — was watchingTriscuits and shredded wheat biscuits being made. Isn’t that crazy? At two years old that memory was made. It intrigued the hell out of me.” (from Wikipedia)
