It may be available on request - when time permits.
A brief introduction to food, cooking methods and trade routes of Classical Greece will be followed by a dipping back into its cuisine. Using Athenaeus’ Deipnosophistai* and archaeological research data as inspiration, the class will enjoy learning how to reproduce ancient Greek recipes both in modern kitchens and according to experimental archaeology.
After the cooking the team will eat what it has been prepared.
*Deipnosophistae is Athenaeus's compilation of the banquet conversations of learned men, written in about 200 AD, which contains much information relating to ancient food and wine and food etiquette.
