Overview

2012 Reprint of 1936 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is an English translation of the oldest known cookbook in existence. The book was originally written for professional cooks working in Ancient Rome, and contains actual recipes presented in the form of a cookbook. The work is translated with the intention of providing an actual cookbook rather than as a scholarly translation of an ancient text. Illustrated. Includes a critical review of the work, a bibliography of early editions and a thorough index. The text is organized in ten books which are arranged in a manner similar to a modern cookbook:

Epimeles - The Careful Housekeeper
Sarcoptes - The Meat Mincer
Cepuros - The Gardener
Pandecter - Many Ingredients
Ospreon - Pulse
Aeropetes - Birds
Polyteles - The Gourmet
Tetrapus - The Quadruped
Thalassa - The Sea
Halieus - The Fisherman
