Full Course Name: 

Black Earth, Red Earth, and Lumpy Beer: the Cuisine of Ancient Egypt

The Greeks and Romans thrived on wine, but their contemporaries the Egyptians were all about beer. Living off the rich “black earth” of the Nile a stone’s throw from the lifeless “red earth” of the desert, the Ancient Egyptians developed a food culture as unique as their environment. Over thousands of years of civilization, they learned to prosper in an inhospitable climate and exploit their great river’s bounty to the fullest.

In this class we’ll learn about the Ancient Egyptian diet and look at some of the ways the Egyptians celebrated food in their art, literature and religion. We’ll also taste some ancient delicacies, including a mummy’s last meal and a recipe taken from the walls of a tomb.

This class is a general overview of Ancient Egyptian food and food culture, with samples. No prior knowledge of the Egyptians is required!
If you're looking for a refund, you need to back out of the class a week before it starts. We know it's draconian, but since we're not charging a million bucks, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings. Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around your friends and see if anyone would take your spot, then just get money from them! We also can't switch you between class sessions or give any sort of refund after the class happens.
