Author Sally Grainger has gathered, in one convenient volume, her modern interpretations of 64 of the recipes in the original text. This is not ‘recipes inspired by the old Romans’ but rather a serious effort to convert the extremely gnomic instructions in the Latin into something that can be reproduced in the modern kitchen which actually gives some idea of what the Romans might have eaten. Grainger, therefore, has taken great pains to suggest means of replicating the particular Roman taste for fermented fish sauce, and any reproduction of Roman cookery must depend on getting this particular aspect right. Softcover 128 pages.
