Item Details

In Around the Table of the Romans, Patrick Faas brings to life the Roman passion for eating. More than just a book of ancient recipes reconstructed for the modern cook (though there are over 150 in the book), this book is a portrait of ancient Roman society as seen from the dining table. Faas explores ancient Roman manners, dining arrangements, spices, seasonings, and cooking techniques. He shows how ancient Roman cuisine differs from its present incarnation. Most of all, he brings the ancient Roman world to life in a book that foodies and history buffs will salivate over.
