Stuffed dormice (and wine!) often come to mind when Roman dining habits are discussed; in fact, a wide range of foodstuffs are known, from written recipes to actual remains. There is also much evidence for farming methods and the transport of foodstuffs, and this course will attempt to follow food ‘from field to plate’. Archaeological and written material from Italy and Egypt will be used, amongst other evidence.

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
