A sensational cookbook featuring recipes inspired by the ancient world.

This updated edition of the best-selling cookbook features a delicious collection of recipes from every strata of classical civilisation, all accessible to the contemporary cook. Using a subtle mixture of sweet and sour flavours, fragrant herbs, creamy cheesecakes and hearty red wines, the ancient Mediterranean cuisine has been brought to life. Pioneering the exploration of menus and manners in ancient Greece and Rome, The Classical Cookbook includes adaptions of forty-nine sumptuous dishes.

Sitting alongside the sun-soaked recipes are rich illustrations of murals, marbles and mosaics, plus lively commentary, which paints a vibrant picture of everyday wining and dining in the ancient world. The Classical Cookbook will prove that we can still enjoy a terrine of asparagus, sweet wine cakes, an olive relish or even Toronaean shark. Featuring step-by-step instructions, the modern cook will be able to tackle everything from simple meals and street food through lavish banquets and wedding feasts with an authentic ancient Greek and Roman flair.
