Andrew Dalby is a classics scholar, linguist, and food historian. He is the author ofVenus: A Biography (Getty Publications, 2005) and Dangerous Tastes: The Story of Spices (University of California Press, 2000). Sally Grainger is a former professional chef and a food historian specializing in ancient baking techniques. She is the author of Cooking Apicius: Roman Recipes for Today (Prospect Books, 2006).

"Fifty recipes from the ancient world are presented in a fresh, new design alongside reproductions of ancient wall paintings, mosaics, vases, and household objects. Originally published in 1996, The Classical Cookbook was the first book about ancient dining to draw from both Greek and Roman writings. Each chapter describes a different social gathering and the food that might have been served on such an occasion. From a menu inspired by Homer's Odyssey in 700 B.C., to the offerings at a typical Greek symposium or drinking party in fourth century Athens, to the special treats at a Macedonian wedding feast, the recipes presented here suggest the true variety of food and social life in the ancient Mediterranean. Enjoy Parthian chicken, fish in coriander sauce, squash Alexandria-style, cabbage the Athenian way, pancakes with honey and sesame seeds, and many more tasty dishes. Each original recipe is followed by a version for today's cook."--
