Io SaturnaliaWe've owned this book for years but I am reminded of it in particular today while I cook our Saturnalia feast out of itI love this book to death I really do but I will just say the recipes are occasionally tricky It would get five stars as an educational read but just three as an actual cookbook Some of the recipes are obvious easy and wonderful Fish in a Coriander Crust comes to mind; some such as the barley rolls I'm making today reuire substantial interpretation on the part of the cook This is our fourth year making these barley rolls and I believe I finally have the recipe modified to the point where we won't break our teeth on the damn thingsNow obviously ancient cooks didn't write down recipes the way we do today so the author is already a step or two into interpretation just by trying to figure out what the ancient cooks meant and DID But it's totally worth it to go get some of the odder ingredients asafoetida available at Indian groceries rue and catmint available at the local hippie natural medicine shop passum raisin wine hard to find and garum ok we just use Thai fish sauce These are flavours that the western palate doesn't experience often and it's a shame really that they've fallen out of favour because they're interestingSalve And a happy Saturnalia to you and yours
