COOKERY AND DINING IN IMPERIAL ROME: A Bibliography, Critical Review and Translation of the Ancient Book Known as Apicus de re Coquinaria
by Apicius. Edited & translated by Joseph Dommers Vehling. 49 B&W illustrations.
Condition: NEW 1997 Dover Trade Paper edition, no printing given . Most likely printed in c. late 1990s or early 2000s. Tiny edge wear.
Content: Oldest known cookbook in existence offers readers a clear picture of what foods Romans ate, how they prepared them. Actual recipes—from fig fed pork and salt fish balls in wine sauce to pumpkin Alexander style, nut custard turnovers and rose pie. Reviewer: "What I find most praiseworthy about this book is Dommers Vehling's obvious interest in gastronomy in general and in ancient cookery in particular. He makes a fairly honest attempt to fill in some of the background for the reader. And although he may be guilty of having his own point of view, we must remember that he was writing over sixty years ago. Dommers also gives the Latin names of the recipes, makes comments on many of them and makes references to other translations." [1 copy available]
