Let’s Cook History – Episode 1: The Roman Banquet: https://youtu.be/JSA7U0nK4Pc
The Middle Ages are often widely regarded as times of squalor, where inequality amongst common people reigned. However, medicine, architecture, masonry and algebra were all spawned then, and recipes recorded in the form of cook books were developed and handed down to our ancestors.
The value systems and attitudes towards, bread, cheese, meat and fish, meant that they provided identities for the consumer. Spices from far away countries, and traders of these valuable commodities heavily influenced dishes at the times. We examine the aspirations of squires, the indulgence of monks, recipes that acted as the time’s pharmaceutical prescriptions and learn about the bodily, as well as the palatal pleasures of Medieval citizens.
An entertaining five part series exploring the origins of our eating habits. Each episode reconstructs a famous meal from a different period in history, depicting the evolution of tastes, customs and world trades that have shaped our cuisine.
