Ancient Food Teachers' Guide
The best way to learn about the history of food, of course, is to cook and eat some! If you have access to a kitchen, that's great, but you can also make a lot of very authentic ancient Greek, or Roman foods without any oven or stove.
For a Greek meal with no cooking, try this:
If you can cook, try slicing good country bread, pouring some olive
oil on it,
sprinkling salt and thyme on top of that and broiling it for a couple of minutes
(just until it is toasted).
For a Roman meal (this needs cooking) try white pizza:
buy or make a pizza crust (or use pita bread)
spread it with olive oil, then grated cheese (use mozzarella), then add vegetables if
you like (onion, green pepper, red pepper, mushrooms, olives) and/or anchovies.
bake it in a hot oven until the crust is cooked (follow the directions on the package)
If you can't cook, try slicing fresh mozzarella cheese on a plate, and drizzling olive oil on top of that, and then sprinkling basil on top.
The Romans also liked cucumbers in honey, but personally I find it
hard to eat.
