Yes, my Citizens – you are looking at the oldest recorded recipes on Earth.
***3700 years old – you can FEEL the antiquity!***
I studied Sumerian history in college and can still navigate through some cuneiform symbols. Had fate been of a different mind, I would this very day be teaching bored students about the epic of Gilgamesh and of his boon companion, the Wild Man Enkidu!
This recipe for Elamite Pottage (stew) is still delicious in modernity and you can feel the ancients of Sumer dining with you if you choose to make it.
Citizens – make it. 🙂
