Food And Cooking In Ancient Egypt (Cooking In World Cultures (Paperback))
Food and Cooking in Ancient Egypt (Cooking in World Cultures (Paperback))
The Ancient Egyptian civilization lasted from around 3000 BC all the way to 30 BC, and despite being built over 2000 years ago many of their grand structures still stand today. The food that drove this civilization to success was as fiery and spicy as the Egyptians themselves. This book contains easy-to-follow recipes from the ancient Egyptian recipe book such as the flavorful, seed-based Dukkah dip.

Grade 4-6–These British imports open with a brief introduction to the specific civilization and then describe the foods that were available to its people, explain how they were prepared and eaten, and examine each culture's food-related rituals. They also provide about six recipes that have been adapted for use with modern ingredients. Most of them require fairly advanced preparation and cooking skills such as chopping and broiling, and safety warnings are minimal. The elementary reading levels and topic coverage and the more advanced skill levels of the recipes are not well matched, which will limit the books' audience.
