This cookbook explores the food of the Mediterranean world in ancient times, from 750 BC to AD 450. The book contains a selection of 50 recipes with translations of the original recipes and versions for the modern cook. All types of food are represented, allowing the cook to recreate the varied diet of the classical world, from the banquets of the rich to the simple meals of soldiers, farmers and slaves. The recipes include terrine of asparagus, sweet wine cakes, olive relish and toronaean shark. The book is illustrated throughout with scenes from wall paintings, mosaics and vases.
