I have yet to purchase and read the entire book, but the preview has been amazing and educational and really paints a much more dynamic picture of the social staples of the various plebs, patricians, aristocrats, and military.
Specifically the available food @ the time, and how spice was so intrical to trade and daily needs of all classes.
I will update my review once I can procure the full book. I also hear that Ilaria Gozzini Giacosa's A Taste of Ancient Rome is another good book.
You learn about delicacies like the liver of drunken pigs, Stuffed Rats, - and the wine.
