A few weeks ago, I went on a library binge and checked out every book I could find about food during the time of Jesus.
This one was far and away my favorite.
One of the reasons I liked this so much is that it was organized into meals. The authors clearly had in mind a spirit of sharing and fellowship when creating this book.
I was impressed by the research they did.
I’ve learned a lot from all of these books, and I do read them all the way through, but my particular interest is in the breads. And this one did not disappoint. It had seven distinct bread recipes.
I combined elements of the wheat and barley bread and the Mediterranean grain bread to make the bread below (recipe here).
The rest of these are recipes I hope to try one day soon.
When I got to the bios, I understood why I liked their book so much. Their combined interests in theology, catering, and research is clear on every page.
I know I’m getting repetitive with all these book reviews, but this is another book I would definitely recommend checking out!
