A meal like you've never eaten before. That's a challenging promise, as there are many dedicated foodies who travel all over the world to sample obscure cuisines in remote locations. But none of them have ever had what we're serving on March 15th in Philadelphia, and here's your chance to try it. The debut event in our "Meals of Antiquity" series offers an entire Babylonian menu from the First Dynasty period, nearly four thousand years ago. This sumptuous winter-time dinner that might have been enjoyed by Hammurabi himself was extensively researched and exhaustively tested by Designing Cook Colin Barth. It consists of four courses (Soup & Bread, Salad, Entree, Dessert) and vegan options are available for each course. As you might imagine, pomegranate and barley are featured in several dishes, but you will also discover Ninda, the first form of leavened bread, and Emmer, the original domesticated wheat species eaten in the ancient fertile crescent. Duck and lamb are among the entree choices, while dessert features fruit and nut confections as well as spiced emmer cakes with honey. Our menu can be found here: Our first seating on March 1st sold out quickly. Here are a few of the reviews: "...dinner like this, with its manifold intellectual and gustatory pleasures, is a firm reminder of why our collective obsession with the food culture of our own time and place - the amazing food scene in Philadelphia, circa early-21st-century - is so riveting and so rewarding." - Brian Freedman, Philadelphia Weekly "What did make it onto the final menu was unique and delicious...The food tastes exotic but not alien." Justin Mummert, Geekadelphia "...found it to be as intriguing as it was tasty." a.d. amorosi, Glamorosi Magazine "The meal has been highly researched by designer Colin Barth in order to ensure its historical accuracy."
