I like to cook, well I mostly love to eat and have other people cook. But when I get down in the kitchen I sometimes channel Julie Child‘s soul food via a ouija board I made out of one of her cookbooks. But if you want to get old school in the kitchen and you need to brush up on your Latin I recommend you look up De Re Coquinaria by Apicius. De Re Coquinaria is thought to be the first cookbook ever written, it is dated somewhere in the first century, A.D.
Since tomatoes are a new world food, ancient Rome did not have tomato sauce and therefore they didn’t have pizza. So what did ancient Roman have for dinner? Well, Apicius list a recipe to serve flamingo.

Never try to sell two things at once.
