A Book for Ancient Chefs

Ancient Roman cuisine was far from dull and boring. The old Romans loved their spices. In fact they did love them so much that their sheer abundance in most of the meals is hard to stomoch for us "modern" people. The book at hand gives you a great inside into the world of ancient Roman cooking and the use of spices in those times. You will be impressed how different tastes used to be 2000 years ago. Some of the combinations are disturbingly alien to us. Some on the other hand seem like something you would find in today's food too.

If you too want to experience what it meant to eat during ancient times, then this cook book is a must-have item for you! Not only does it explain how to use spices, it also explains why they were used and what believes and expectations the old Romans projected on them.

It also makes for a great present for people inclined with ancient times or food lovers in general. So, do not hesitate and become the new Apicius!
