The Imperial Rome Cookbook
The recipes in The Imperial Rome Cookbook are based on ancient Roman dishes, but they have been complemented with modern vegan recipes that pay homage to the ingredients and traditions of the past. There are recipes for fish and seafood, various types of game and meat, vegetables, grains, beverages, and sauces. There are also tips on preserving, revitalizing, and even adulterating food. Some of the recipes are shockingly contemporary, while others rely on products and techniques that have long since vanished. Understanding the ingredients and methods employed in the recipes and the relationship between Roman cooking and our own traditions is vital.
