Ultimate History Cookbook

What's Inside?

From the beginning of human history, food has been a central pillar of our societies. Whether it was the first communities that organised around hunting and gathering to fill the dining table, the first farmers who cultivated land to provide for their growing villages or the emperors who used bread to placate the masses, food has helped to drive innovation, conquest and politics for centuries. It's also what helps bring our friends and family together to share quality time with one another. But what kinds of foods was Cleopatra enjoying? What had Tudor children running in from the garden when the dinner bell rang?


And what kept the armies of the Spartans, Romans and Mongols marching day after day? You can find the answers to these questions in the following pages as well as step-by-step guides on how to make these delicious meals for yourself at home. Covering thousands of years of history and spanning across the globe, this book of recipes offers up all sorts of delicacies from the past. So, whether you're looking for a quick snack, a hearty lunch, a family-pleasing meal or a drink to wash it all down, we have you covered. And there's plenty of history you can learn along the way too. Bon appétit!
