BASONOVA–Food, Glorious Food! Home Cooking in Ancient Israel

The subject of food has taken a central role on the cultural stage. There are numerous podcasts, television and radio shows, celebrity chefs, and even entire television channels dedicated to the cooking of food. This trend in food has even spread to the academic arena and has been the topic of much research in various fields, including Biblical Studies and Biblical Archaeology.

Cooking in Israel

Dr. Cynthia Shafer-Elliott will talk about the food prepared by the average ancient Israelite household. By utilizing the methods of household archaeology, ethno-archaeology, and texts from the Hebrew Bible, she will attempt to present what and how the Israelites prepared their food on a daily basis.
