I sometimes wonder what other ancient Roman food is actually delicious. They were absolutely right about garum.

Well, there's always silphium, aka laserwort. It was a herb used as a seasoning for cooking. Probably tasted like a better asafoetida, since that was considered a cheap substitute for silphium.

Oh, and it was a natural contraceptive. Its seeds or fruits may have been the basis for the heart symbol. And it went extinct sometime during the Roman Republic.

I'm fascinated by stuff like this

https://www.npr.org/2020/12/27/950645473/whats-on-the-menu-in-ancient-pompeii-duck-goat-snail-researchers-say

I love evidence that 2000 years ago there was more we'd recognize and be right at home with than that we'd find totally alien. Like the Colosseum had vendor stalls selling pennants and beer hats and poo poo

Also just imagining what that Pompeiian-equivalent halal cart tasted like after hundreds of years assimilating cultures around the Mediterranean. (I mean it was pretty early in the Empire but still, drat I bet you could order it spicy)

The numbers around this guy are totally conflicting, but he was definitely turbo wealthy.

quote:

Classics professor Peter Struck describes him as "the best-paid athlete of all time",[1] worth between approximately $60 million and $160 million in equivalent basic goods purchasing power.

I think modern quarterbacks are worth more but whatever.

They apparently were actually going to have that in Gladiator but felt audiences wouldn't believe it.

I feel it'd work more if the whole idea of gladiators always fighting to the death was countered with the historical reality of them being almost literally pro wrestlers with weapons.

There are now, but they're mostly from the same origins as jalapenos and cayennes.

There would have been some varieties of peppercorns, though!

We are all drinking from the highball glass of ideology.

A lot of Roman food was seasoned heavily with cumin, coriander, onion, and herbs. So it was "spicy" in that it was heavily flavored with spices, but not "spicy" like it burns your mouth. Think of like modern Persian or North African cuisines. Also, a lot of traditionally Italian stuff like pesto, focaccia, lasagna, and even pizza were eaten regularly by the Romans.

Thump!

I'm less inclined to dog the irish for their association with potatoes after learning why it happened, and that's entirely setting aside the famine

Meanwhile America planted bradford pear trees everywhere which don't bear fruit, are an invasive species that destroys the plant, wildlife, and insect ecosystems, create safety hazards because they're lovely and split in half in a light breeze, cover everything in absurd amounts of pollen and detritus...

They do produce in science terms a fruit, but it's not an edible fruit.

They're a crossbreeding nightmare where the end result is a "pear" that's tiny and rock hard and inedible. And its root system kills other plants while that fruit kills animals and the nasty odors and toxic blooms kill insects.

It's a loving abomination.
