A precious evidence of the culinary extravagances of the Romans is represented by the “De re coquinaria” (the culinary art), a work made of ten books where many recipes of the Imperial age are revealed. Its author was originally claimed to be Marco Gavio Apicio (1st century b.C.), one of the greatest gourmets of the Roman history, but it is actually the result of a “collage” of the work of following authors, probably of the III or IV century a.d.
