Flavours of Byzantium., Dalby,Andrew.
16 Dalby,Andrew. Flavours of Byzantium.
1903018145 / 9781903018149 New 
2003. 22cm. Pp.200. Hardback. Presents the only culinary history of Byzantium in the Middle Ages. Here are laid out the food habits of the Eastern Roman Empire in the Middle Ages, which for centuries has tempted and fascinated the West, yet little has been written in English on the subject. This is a pioneering study. The cookery of Byzantium was a synthesis of the love of spices and exotic flavours so typical of Roman food and the emphasis on seafood and the local produce of the Aegean that emerges from the long tradition of Greek gastronomy. It prefigures modern Turkish and Greek cookery. The Byzantines were probably the first to twin rosemay with lamb; use saffron in the kitchen; make the 'pastirma' of modern Turkey; popularize caviar; and naturalize the orange and the aubergine. Andrew Dalby begins with chapters introducing Byzantium and its culture, and continues by discussing 'The Tastes and Smells of the City', then 'The Foods and Markets of Constantinope', before an account of some travellers' tales and an overview of the way in which Byzantium was entrepot of foods and flavours from the then known world. There then follows a translation over 50 pages of Byzantine texts relating to food, in particular in relation to medicine and human health, and the passage of the seasons. Andrew then distils a few recipes from his Byzantine researches, before compiling a very extensive glossary of Byzantine Greek food terms and words, with citations of primary sources.
