      How Aramaic Food May Have Saved Darwin
      by Father Dale A. Johnson

      On the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth

      When Roman armies expanded into the eastern frontier in the 2nd century BC they discovered foods that provided both health and pleasure. Aramaic recipes were brought back to Rome. Some of these recipes included meat pies, apple tarts, delicate custards held together by eggs and honey. Later, when Roman soldiers occupied Britain they brought with them these recipes and began a British love affair with all-things-pudding.

      British cuisine is founded on Roman diets who in turn borrowed their recipes from many cultures including from Aramaic peoples, inheritors of ancient Sumero-Akkadian cultures. Rome borrowed most food dishes we think of as Roman or Italian. Even spaghetti is not Roman in origin.
