Museum in the U.S displays ancient Babylonian cooking recipes
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The International Festival of Arts and Ideas event was held in the U.S., in cooperation with Yale Peabody Museum.
The festival aimed at reviving ancient cooking recipes inspired by writings from tablets that are a part of their Babylonian collection.
In a unique experiment, 4000-year-old cooking recipes from the Babylonian heritage were prepared.
Top chefs from 30 restaurants gathered to cook Babylonian-Assyrian dishes that no one has cooked for thousands of years. The recipes were written on clay tablets in the ancient cuneiform script.
At the end of the festival, the attendees agreed that the event was special and expressed their great satisfaction with the food served.
