Product description

Examines cooking through the dual lens of archaeology and art history. This book shows that cuisine - the higher, skilled and creative manifestation of cooking - is an art that should be elevated to the level of those more generally termed "fine". Phyllis Pray Bober describes prehistoric eating in ancient Turkey; traditions of the great civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece and Rome; and rituals of the Middle Ages and the "Late Gothic International" period. To satisfy the adventurous reader, Bober has included old menus with contemporary adaptations.
