What did people eat in Biblical Times?

A Biblical Feast on Heritage Radio Network

In taking the time to navigate my Linked In contacts, I came upon Linda Pelaccio, the host of the half hour, weekly radio show, "A Taste of the Past"  on

Linda "indulges her curiosity about food, cooking, drinking and dining of the past by taking a journey through culinary history . . . from as long ago as ancient Mesopotamia and Rome right up to the grazing tables and deli counters of today." 

She interviewed me about A Biblical Feast on one of her  recent programs titled

A Taste of the Past – Episode 48 – The Ancient Legacy of the Mediterranean Die

First Aired on – 01/27/2011 12:00PM

"This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda is joined by Moroccan born author and cooking instructor, Kitty Morse. Kitty's latest book, "A Biblical Feast: Ancient Mediterranean Flavors for Today's Table", is as much a history book as it is a cookbook. Tune in and learn more about how and what people ate in Biblical times, the origins of fish sauce, and what makes real Ezekiel bread."

San Diego Living appearance was fun!

How can it NOT be fun when Jim Bratton, host of San Diego Living, took OFF his shoes before coming on the set, so we could better see eye to eye. That didn't happen! Jim was charming and easy going, and VERY TALL, and he liked my Sesame Nigella Almond sprinkle! Here are a couple of dishes Jim and the crew sampled, out of A Biblical Feast.
