Food at the time of the Bible by Miriam Feinberg Vamosh
From Adam's Apple to the Last Supper
Includes authentic recipes from the time of Jesus.
Was the "forbidden fruit" of the Garden of Eden really an apple? What in the world is St. Peter's Fish? What was in the bowl that Jesus dipped into at the Last Supper? Within the pages of this book you will find a uniquely in-depth and easy-to-read survey of every aspect of food in the Bible, accompanied by fascinating illustration and photographs.
