Here at BAS, one of our favorite ways to familiarize ourselves with a foreign culture is to sample its cuisine. Not only do you learn what ingredients and cooking methods are favored, but also the setting in which meals are typically shared and with whom.
This eBook includes a collection of recipes, all in the hope to introduce you, our readers, to a new—yet old—kind of cooking. If you have ever wanted to eat like an ancient Babylonian, Roman, etc., now you can. We’ve tracked down ancient recipes and tried to recreate them using modern ingredients, so that you, too, can enjoy these dishes. Join us on a gastronomical adventure!
If you enjoy cooking and sampling the foods of the past, let us know! Send emails (and pictures) of your own creations to [email protected]. New recipes are released in the pages of BAR and on our blog, Bible History Daily, so keep your eyes peeled and your stomach ready. We hope you enjoy reading and testing these recipes as much as we did in the BAR test kitchen.
We’ll send you a link to download your copy of Recipes from the BAR Test Kitchen and offer you a FREE registration to the Bible History Daily newsletter, bringing the world of the Bible and archaeology directly to your inbox. Your FREE registration to Bible History Daily introduces you to community discussions on fascinating topics like the Dead Sea Scrolls, top biblical archaeology discoveries, ancient Israel and Easter.
