Pass The Garum


In history we tend to look at the big things - the battles, the baddies, the plot and the intrigue - but sometimes it's the average and the everyday which impress most, giving us the tiniest of glimpses into the lives of the long dead. Pass the Garum is a cooking blog focused on the recipes and cuisine of ancient Rome.

Garum was a fermented fish sauce which the Romans loved to put in everything. So, much as we might say 'pass the salt', a Roman might ask their toga-clad chum to 'pass the garum'.
