Omtale: Food in the Ancient World
In "Food in the Ancient World", a respected classicist and a practising world-class chef explore a millennium of eating and drinking. This book explores a millennium of food consumption, from c.750 BC to 200 AD; shows the pivotal role food had in a world where it was linked with morality and the social order; concerns people from all walks of life - impoverished citizens subsisting on cereals to the meat-eating elites; describes religious sacrifices, ancient dinner parties and drinking bouts, as well as exotic foods and recipes; and, considers the role of food in ancient literature from Homer to Juvenal and Petronius.
