Have you ever wondered what Jesus and the apostles ate and drank? Perhaps you’ve seen movies of gladiators and wondered what foods they ate to keep them healthy. Or maybe you’ve eaten a Caesar’s salad and wondered what the Caesars had on their plates. E. G. Lewis’s At Table with the Lord: Foods of the First Century is a fascinating collection of essays, revealing, amongst other things, what might have been in Mary’s cupboard, how ancient beer was made, what sort of figs grew in Israel, and what sort of frozen foods the Romans might have enjoyed. Filled with curious details, intriguing facts, and mind-boggling revelations, plus recipes, explanations of the rules for kosher fish, and interesting depictions of first century life around the world, this is a thoroughly enjoyable book to read in one sitting or to dip into night after night for more tidbits and essays to enjoy.
