This book was purchased as a birthday gift for my brother; a unique recipient as he is both a foodie and an archaeology major. He is also one of the most critical, pickiest people I happen to love. I bought it with the intent of it being little more than a novelty, but it turns out he's pretty happy with it being a great deal more than that. The inclusion of original texts allowed for some fun attempts at translating himself, but the practicality of fleshing the recipes out to something a person might actually be able to prepare is where this cookbook shines. When I flipped through it, I found it to be interesting and, frankly, just plain cool...but didn't see anything particularly inspiring. BUT, for a guy who loves all things ancient Rome - this was the golden ticket.
