Publishers Text

Marrow Alexandria-style, fish in coriander crust or pancakes with honey and sesame seeds - all types of food are represented here. This is an exploration of Mediterranean cuisine from 750 BC to AD 450 which allows the modern cook to recreate the varied diet of the classical world, from the banquets of the rich elite to the simpler meals of soldiers, farmers and slaves. Translations of the 50 original recipes are followed by a version specially adapted for the modern cook. The book is illustrated throughout with delightful scenes of food, feasting and carousing from wall paintings, mosaics and Greek vases.
