Author 1Andrew Dalby
Editorial Review""A fascinating read, with its descriptions of the glittering centre of an empire. Along with his portrait of Byzantines feasting on spiced wine and sugary sweets, Dalby includes many colourful observations."" -- Charles Perry, Cornucopia ""A delightful book…Tastes of Byzantium offers a novel and humane approach to the Byzantines and their culture, and one that should appeal to Byzantinists as well as general readers."" -- The Bryn Mawr Classical Review ""The only book in English concerning the history of the very elusive cuisine of Byzantium. Dalby – classicist, historian, and aficionado of linguistics – brings impressive credentials to this pioneering study...bubbles and roils with tales, anecdotes, and just plain gore"" -- Culinary Historians of New York
