hello welcome to how to become a royal rome so I went interviewing Augustus ceasar about how to eat like a Roman this is how it went
hello Augustus Caesar I am going to ak you som questions about your diet. With your diet I mean a diet from a wealthy Roman. Are you ready for my questions?
I eat varied meals from all over Greece I like Pottage, with cooked meat and wine sauce. I also eat a lot of different fruits and vegetables I use herbs and spices to flavour my food. I also love to eat cheese. Sometimes I eat dishes like flamingo tongs and camel heels.
the first question is what do you like to eat?
sometimes I eat up to 7 corses at dinner. between these corses I take a salty drink this make me trow up and then I can continue eating.
I eat my food while laying down on couches like this one the couches around a low table I mostly use my fingers to eat and when I do use a fork of knife they are made from bronze or wood we get these from the finest craft man. I never drink the wine straight from the bottle but I drink it in a wine glass.
interesting, but how do you like to eat your food?
I eat breakfast at dawn.The mid-day meal is a light meal to hold one over until the evening
so now, can you tell me when you eat this food.
well, mean time is meant to be a social event so I often talk about politic and art while eating we also look to dances and listen to music
this interview was very interesting so you red it people, this is how you have to eat like a Royal Roman.
