The great River Nile was the life staff of the Ancient Egyptians. Once a year it flooded its banks, depositing nutrient-rich soil and making Egypt one of the most fertile regions on Earth. As a result, the Egyptians enjoyed a wholesome diet. This cookbook recreates the flavours of Ancient Egypt with 35 recipes "pocket loaves" and dried fig and apricot jam, and fish with Tarator sauce.
