Scientists decided to re-create dishes that are about 4,000 years old.
In this task, professional chefs came to the aid of archaeologists. Scientists found recipes during excavations on the territory of the once great people of Assyria and Babylon.
Not all dishes can be decrypted, but about 25 dishes from the ancient Sumerians are now known by the scientific community.
It was possible to find that 4000 years ago, people preferred to cook meat and soups. The chefs first decided to try to cook the stewed lamb.
Unfortunately, not all components are available these days. Specialists administered meat, milk, garlic, salt and shallots. Experts said the taste of the dish is very similar to the modern interpretation.
