Roman Food

There will be at some point a different entry on food in modern-day Rome, the city. Rome was founded, historians believe, by 625 BC (though the Romans themselves believed their city was founded in 735 BC.) The last Emperor (Romulus Augustus) was tossed out in 476 AD, about 1100 years later. If we think that the past 100 years have changed the food we eat, imagine how much Roman food would have changed over 1100 years. The Romans assigned a lot of symbolism to their food, but it was far more class symbolism than religious. Roman dining varied widely depending on how much money you had. Romans had many minor influences on their food -- as food came in from various parts of the expanding empire -- and perhaps two major influences.

Much of Roman food was based on combining sweet, sour and savoury tastes all in one dish, just as Chinese food still does today. Roman Cookbooks Roman Meals.
