How to Bake Roman Bread
« on: October 03, 2017, 03:30:10 PM »
Giorgo Locatelli has done a video for the British Museum on how to bake a loaf of bread akin to the carbonized one found in Herculaneum. Notice the carry string around its waist and the bakery stamp. That's some marketing!

True, true. I do like bread. Not sure about the lead bakery stamp though!

The lead adds flavour and authenticity.

A little lead in your diet makes you a real man! Just ask that horse they let in the senate.
