Welcome to A Taste of the Ancient World

STOP PRESS my new book is out

The Story of Garum | Taylor & Francis Group

Exploring Roman food and its preparation and consumption through experimental archaeology. I am Sally Grainger Roman food historian and archaeologist and this is my blog. Join me in an exploration of the cooking techniques of the Romans.

In the following pages you can find links to YouTube videos of cooking demonstrations of ancient Roman and Greek recipes prepared in my outdoor demonstration kitchen. Each video will have its own accompanying blog post on this site with details of the recipe sources and a wider discussion which I encourage you to contribute too.
