A meal fit for Caesar!

As part of the history syllabus, Archimedes class decided to delve into the world of Roman cooking. The enthusiastic year 4 children were bold enough to not only prepare one piece of Ancient Roman food, but three dishes.

Mr Bacon explained that, “after much stirring, kneading, chopping and crushing with a  pestle and mortar, we were all able to appreciate the delights of their rustic Roman bread, sweet tasting honey-cake and delicious Columella Salad. It was a pleasure to work with the children, who all did amazing job at creating this culinary success!”

The children thoroughly enjoyed preparing this Roman feast, which was accompanied with grapes, cucumber and raw cabbage dipped in vinegar for the full Roman experience.

Miss Clarke, was lucky enough to taste the last piece of the food and was thoroughly impressed with the tastiness and texture of the cooking.
