Transcript of FOOOOOOOODDD of Ancient Rome :>

Learn about food, cooking tools, vomitoriums, and recipes of Ancient Rome- all in one presentation!
Food
For breakfast, Romans had pancakes with honey
Romans often enjoyed their famous beverage- wine.
Garum sauce was one of the main ingredients of most meals in Ancient Rome; we will later go over the ingredients of this.
Romans ate bread soaked in milk or oil. They could even soak it in fat. To wipe a table, a Roman could simply break off a piece of bread, dab it on the oil on the table, and eat it like an edible napkin. They could also wipe with the napkins provided.
Most Romans ate expensive food to show their plentiful wealth. It was displaying their pride in a sense
Some delicacies of the Ancient Romans were ostrich and roast peacock
The Romans had baked dormice. The mice, similar to gray squirrels, had 'surgery' of a sort performed on them. They were stuffed with pork and herbs, then sewed back together to look whole.
Romans often ate their food with a variety of sauces.
VOMITORIUMS
Cooking Tools
Rich Romans had portable ovens made out of precious metals
They had ornamental water heaters
Sand was used to clean dishes
Cauldrons (large metal cooking pots) were hung by chains over a fire
Charcoal or wood was used for a heater
Mortia was a stout bowl used for mashing and crushing
Boar was roasted on spits
"Fretale" is a frying pan made of bronze
DON'T GO AHEAD FROM HERE
A vomitorium is a passage or corridor in a large stadium or amphitheater that allows large crowds to empty the theater quickly.
Many people (probably including you) thought that vomitoriums were where people actually, you know, did some nasty things to... well... make room for more food.
This is because the words vomit and vomitorium come from the same root
Many different authors, including the renowned Aldous Huxley, have stated the misinterpreted definition of a vomitorium, resulting in massive false belief amongst everyday people.
I just put your hopes down didn't I >:)< (That was mainly for the boys)

Poor food in Ancient Rome was much different than the rich

If they had extra money, cheese was a fine specialty
Wheat was the most common resource
Your Homework For Tonight
Chapter 2: Cooking Tools
Romans enjoyed lettuce because they believed it helped you sleep
They ate dinner in late afternoon
Dinner was the main course of the day
They liked eating while reclining on a couch with their hands
Romans never ate with a knife and fork
A staple of the Roman diet was the dormouse, an animal similar to a gray squirrel, now an endangered species.
Wait for it....
