Ancient History Cookbook


With a desire to make history come alive for our family, we decided to research what different civilizations ate. ​We learned that the Persians loved to celebrate special occasions with sweets. The Egyptians cooked with lots of garlic, leeks, and barley. They also sweetened with honey. Of course, then we had to find some recipes and try to recreate their food!

Would your family enjoy bringing life to Ancient History studies? Ancient History Cookbook will open the door to exploring ancient civilizations in a way that tastes delicious. For my son, cooking, baking, and EATING are the best part of learning history!

Here is our Ancient History Cookbook. We used it in our home and in our world history homeschool co-op. Everyone loved it! We would take turns making lunch based on the time period we were studying. From Eve’s Apple & Walnut Salad in the Garden of Eden to Ancient Egypt’s Leek and Onion Soup, we cooked and baked our way through time.

If you want to teach history the fun way, include cooking and baking to explore the time period, geographical area, and people you are studying, Ancient History Cookbook will be a tool in your history teaching toolbox. Food is a great way to immerse ourselves in a time period we are studying. After all, history is not just a bunch of dates and information, history is about real people who are loved by the One who created each one. I want my kids to love history because it’s God Story. This is a great way to cultivate history enthusiasm!
