Food For Thought

Last week_ we said we'd reveal the Roman menu upon which ARA members feasted at the weekend 19-20 June MMIV . . in the famous Fishbourne Roman Palace, Chichester (Noviomagus)_, UK. It can now be reported that the whole Fundraising Banquet was produced with archaeologically proven ingredients: all evidenced in the ancient environmental levels and in analyses of the Palace soil and Roman gardens. So the menu was thoughtfully based on today's local produce of the same kinds: crabs +pears +cabbage +pork +mushrooms and herbs.
We have not yet told you in what order these items were enjoyed - nor the original Roman recipe. . . . see the forthcoming ARA Annual Report?
