As a historian and foodie, this book is essential to anyone interested in diining Romans lived. It’s literally one of the world’s first cook books, and all the recipes work. Many of the recipes from Ancient Rome would form the standard European and middle-eastern repertoire of cooking up to the modern day. Ovis Apalus, for example, is deviled eggs albeit, the Romans liked them a little more fishy, adding shrimp and fish sauce.

The sausage recipes are easily recognized in the modern day as breakfast, Italian, and Salami. There is even a recipe that will astonish those of Scotch ancestry.

Apparently, Apicius has a recipe for a dish that is nearly identical to modern-day haggis! This book will amuse, amaze, and satisfy your palate and stomach, as well as your mind, with accessible, exotic, and arguably kmperial cuisine. The translation and adaptation of recipes is very well done.

You need not worry about making your own garum, for example, a sauce made from fermented fish guts; many asian supermarkets carry bottled fish cokoery that is made in much the same way, and tastes much the same, as well Don’t worry, it tastes like anchovies.

We once used this book as the basis for a Roman Style toga party and feast. So fascinating, this is not a quick rlme breezy read.
