Culinary archaeology

with Ursula Janssen

As an archaeologist and culinary historian, I offer workshops about historic cuisine, featuring the history of Mediterranean and European cuisines from Bronze Age via classical antiquity and the Middle Ages to the early modern era. Historical recipes surprise with their – for us – unusual combination of tastes and aromas, blending the salty, the sweet, the sour and the spicy into astounding combinations.  

In addition, I also offer a special workshop about dishes from the places and time of the Bible, offering insight into the prehistoric and early historical mediterranean diet. Wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and honey are the biblical “Seven Types” that form the basis of the cuisine not only of the Holy Land but of the entire mediterranean region. Thanks to archaeological and historical findings we know quite well what was grown, hunted, bred, cooked and eaten. 

We would recommend you to stay with us in our small charming family B&B, Trullo Cicerone, or in the yurt (according to availability). 

Minimum number of participants: 2, maximum number of participants: 6

Duration: 4 days.

Price per person without accommodation: € 600.-, with 5 nights accommodation including breakfast and four historical dinner experiences: € 1,000.- (ask us for couple/family discounts).

All activity takes place according to the rules established for the containment of covid 19.

Laboratorio di cibo antico

Come archeologa e storica dell’alimentazione, offro workshop sulla cucina storica mediterranea ed europea, dall’età del bronzo, l’antichità classica, il Medioevo e la prima epoca moderna. Le ricette storiche sorprendono con la loro – per noi – straordinaria combinazione di sapori e aromi, mescolando il salato, il dolce e il agro in combinazioni sorprendenti. Parleremo anche dell’antico concetto di benessere dei quattro umori, e di come influenza la nostra cucina fino ad oggi.

Inoltre, offro anche un laboratorio speciale sui piatti dei luoghi e dei tempi della Bibbia, offrendo uno sguardo sulla dieta mediterranea preistorica e del primo periodo storico. Grano, orzo, uva, fichi, melograno, olive e miele sono i “Sette Tipi” biblici che costituiscono la base della cucina non solo della Terra Santa ma di tutta la regione mediterranea. Grazie ai ritrovamenti archeologici e storici sappiamo abbastanza bene cosa veniva coltivato, cacciato, allevato, cucinato e mangiato.

Tutta l’attività si svolge all’aperto e secondo le regole stabilite per il contenimento di covid 19.
Il costo è 35,- per persona. Per ulteriori informazioni su una serata indimenticabile, mandate una e-mail a trullocicerone@email.de .
