  1. 1. Food in Ancient Rome Abigail Tremp
  2. 2. Food Eaten by Plebeians • Since they typically could not afford bread, the common people of Ancient Rome usually ate porridge or puls. • Puls is made from boiled grains and could be spiced up with vegetables or herbs. • Puls could also be flavored with garum, which was a liquid made from fermented fish intestines. • When the common people could afford it, they would eat bread as well, but majority of the time they ate puls since it was the only thing they could afford.
  3. 3. Food Eaten by Patricians • The wealthy people of Ancient Rome would eat bread with almost every meal. • Bread and cheese were often eaten together by the wealthy, since they could afford those luxuries. • Dinners of the wealthy people typically included fish or poultry, eggs, and vegetables. • For dessert, the wealthy people typically ate something with honey in it, such as stuffed dates fried in honey. • Another common dessert was libum, which is similar to the cheesecake we have now.
