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?
