Before Rome became a powerful empire, Romans ate simple meals of porridge, dried vegetables, and greens.
People rarely ate meat or seafood. After Rome's conquests, the dining habits of wealthy Romans changed. Newly rich Romans showed off their wealth with expensive feasts that included exotic foods and lively entertainment for their guests.
At Roman dinner parties, guests reclined on couches. The enslaved servants served them food, which would be carried into the banquet room on great silver platters.
Roman dishes might include: boiled crane with turnips; boiled stingray garnished with hot raisins; or roast flamingo cooked with dates, onions, honey and wine.
