Taste Archaeology

Good morning, afternoon, evening,

 

archaeology is within us as a great resource to explore.

If we don't know what happened before us we can't know what we are.

Food too is included, we are what we eat, aren't we?

The more we know about food, the more we know about ourselves.

What is your favourite dish?

How often do you have guests at home to share meals with?

What is a successful menu of yours?

This book - we translated - is about Romans' empire, civilization, culture, society and cookery.

Interesting texts, beautiful pictures, delicious recipes, elegant design. 

Be curious, find it on the Internet and study it, then offer your guests unusual recipes.

The two ones you find here and you can try are a possibility to create a connection between you and a people who influenced also British developement. So many remains are in the language too. 

Can you think of Latin in the English language?

How many samples do you know? 

Why don't you write them down here with your comment?


Thank you for contributing to our "language excavations" in addition to the gastronomic ones you can read on the book.

See you in class, enjoy your English
