A Biblical Feast: Foods from the Holy Land.
The author, Kitty Morse lists all the foods mentioned
in the King James Bible, but assumes there were
others, too, because the writers of the Old and
New Testaments were, logically, more concerned with
theology and other events than with "botanical,
zoological, and culinary matters."
Morse also explains what grains were available
and how they were used. There are recipes you will
enjoy, such as Toasted Ground Almond and Sesame
Dip; Chicken, Leek, and Garbanzo Bean Stew; and
Apricots with Pomegranate Seeds and Toasted Nuts
in Honey Syrup. A Biblical Feast is recommended
for teachers and for those who might use its information
in family activities.
