Bf b'day soon and he has mentioned a book he wants and its a cookery book with recipes in that were from Roman times (original recipes?) can anyone help?
Yes, it will be a version of Apicius.
Eg this or this
Could be Cooking Apicius: Roman Recipes for Today
Or Roman Cookery: Ancient Recipes for Modern Kitchens
Or Roman Cookery: Recipes and History
My mother has another one but I can't remember the title...
Fantastic , knew MN would come to the rescue!
Now I just need to find out what else he would like [rollseyes] I hate shopping for men and a new bf who has everything is a nightmare (think I also need to start listening more when he talks about films too)
A massive pestle and mortar and a barrel of anchovies so he can make the recipes in the book?
actually, seriously, if he has got everything you could get him some of the ingredients for the recipes - special things like nice olives or a bottle of decent olive oil?
OOh good idea thanks Kathy
