Cooking Apicius: Roman Recipes for Today – Review

This handy little book is a stroke of genius on the publishers part. A collection

of recipes from Apicius as researched and trialled by the author – who just

happens to be the same as co-authored Apicius – A Critical Review. No

wading through pages of discourse, reviews and examinations of potential

influences – just straight to the recipes.

Roman Cookery – Ancient Recipes for Modern Kitchen

Want to make the snacks for your average roman barfly at the local Taverna?

Or impress the neighbours with a bang up dinner on a week night but you’re

not really into the larks tongues and dormice? Well neither was the average

Roman citizen – even if they could afford it.

Apicius: A critical edition with an introduction and English translation – Review

Of all the many translations of Apicius, this is the one I’d save if a fire broke

out. The kernel of this book was Sally’s PhD thesis with judicial editing and

input from Christopher Grogock to make it more readable. It is a beautiful – if

hardcore academic – consolidated translation of the various fragments of

Apicius de re Coquinaria around the world.
