Apicius is an Ancient Roman cookbook containing recipes from around the 4th or 5th century AD. Many of the recipes are probably much older and may even be of Greek origin. Eating Apicius recreates some of these recipes and gives you the chance to taste the food of Ancient Rome. This is the food that was eaten by Aristocrats in Triclinia to workers in Popinae – so whatever your social standing, come and discover what the Romans can still do for you.
