Max Shuman: Roman Food

Roman Food paragraph Max Shuman


My partner Gabby Scarpa and I chose to do our roman tour about food and how it was made. The average roman day (for the rich) consisted of 3 meals; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast and lunch were mainly sources of fuel until the big dinner meal. Most dinner meals were spent laying down and eating food with their hands. The dinner meals composed of fish, meat or poultry, and sides like bread or salad. Most meals also consisted of three different parts, appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Desserts were often the most desirable parts of the meal, consisting of cakes, and different pastries. But, most dinners were used as ways of partying, so every meal was a fun time!!
