Food at the Time of the Bible
From Adam’s Apple to the Last Supper
What did people eat in Biblical times? How did they grow their food, store it, trade it, and prepare it? What are the symbolic meanings behind the various foods? All these questions are answered in this in-depth, easy-to-read book, which exhaustively covers every aspect of food in the Bible, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs.
Miriam Feinberg Vamosh examines each type of food, starting with the seven species that grow in Israel, and continues with fish, meat and milk, fruit, vegetables and sweets.
Detailed explanations are given about the impact of food on history, how pacts were sealed by a meal, and how the very act of eating was imbued with sanctity. Included at the end of the book is a section of recipes which could have been used in ancient times.
It is a land of wheat and barley, grapevines, fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey. (Deuteronomy 8:8)
