  • What did people eat at the time of the Bible? How did they grow their food, store it, trade in it and prepare it? What are the symbolic meanings behind various foods? This is an in-depth, easy-to-read survey of every aspect of food in the Bible, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs. The book examines each type of food, starting with the seven species that grow in the Holy Land, and continues with fish, meat and milk, fruit, vegetables and sweets. The impact of food on history is explained, how pacts were sealed by a meal and how the very act of eating was imbued with sanctity. At the end of the book is a section on recipes which could have been prepared in ancient times.
