5 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks had many ways to cook their food Ancient Greeks Food

6 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks used a clay oven to make and or heat up their food, but was most commonly used for making bread. Only wealthier people in ancient Greece could afford to make their own bread with real wheat. Poorer people had to buy their bread instead of making their own bread, and the bread they bought was made with barley instead of wheat. Before they put the kneaded dough in the oven the ancient Greeks would heat the oven in advance with sticks of wood. Clay Ovens Back to Room 1

7 Name of Museum Bread and Olive Oil Back to Room 1 A lot of people in ancient Greece ate bread and olive oil because they were the few crops that grew well enough to harvest and then eat. The ancient Greeks also ate a lot of grapes (grapes were also another crop that grew well in the stony soil of ancient Greece). Because there were so many grapes, the Greeks turned them into wine. The Greeks only drank wine when it was watered down. People thought that drinking wine with no water was barbaric. The ancient Greeks also ate wild lettuce, wild onions, and wild garlic.

8 Name of Museum In ancient Greece almost everyone ate fish. It was extremely easy to catch since Greece is a peninsula (meaning that it has three sides of water surrounding it). Sailors from the Greek islands would bring fish back to the middle of Greece(where there wasn't a lot of water to catch fish) and trade with other people for it. Since fresh fish was expensive poorer people would buy dried or salted fish. Ancient Greeks would also eat dried or smoked fish with bread, boiled eggs, and goat cheese for lunch.

9 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks thought that it was wrong to raise an animal and then slaughter and eat it. So when they ate meat it had to be fresh meat, sacrificed to a god, and had to be hunted in the wild. Only the wealthiest people in ancient Greece could afford to buy and eat meat. The poorer people who couldn't afford it caught rabbits, deer,swans,ducks,and owls instead. Meat Back to Room 1

10 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks grew olives, grapes, figs, and wheat, and also kept goats for milk. The Greeks turned the olives into olive oil and usually ate it with bread. Grapes were turned into wine and were also eaten by themselves. Figs were usually eaten as a dessert. Wheat was usually used to make bread. Olives Back to Room 2

11 Name of Museum Ancient Greeks used barley for bread, as a type of flour, and also as a porridge. Poorer people who couldn't grow or afford wheat substituted it with barley. Barley is a cereal grain and wheat is a cereal plant, so using barley as a substitute for wheat did not really change the taste of the recipes where wheat was substituted. Barley Back to Room 2

12 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks would plant fresh vegetables, and fruits such as: peas, beans, turnips, garlic, onions, pomegranates, dates, grapes, and melons. These crops were the few that grew well in the stony soil of ancient Greece. In the winter months the ancient Greeks ate food that were harvested food in the fall and then carefully stored away. The foods that were harvested in the fall were apples, chestnuts, lentils, and goat cheese. Grapes Back to Room 2

13 Name of Museum A very popular way to cook your food in ancient Greece was to put the food under hot coals(this is kind of like a barbeque that we use today),or use a fire to cook the food. Since Greece is very mountainous and rocky, the Greeks would build a fire pit with stones they found outside of their homes. Stone Fire pit Back to Room 3

14 Name of Museum The ancient Greeks also used a spit to cook their food as well (a spit is a piece of equipment used to help people cook their food over a fire, or hot charcoals). They also used boiled their food over a fire (they didn't boil their food any different than how we boil our food except for the fact that we dont boil our food over a fire like they did).

15 Name of Museum A lot of people also fried (they didn't fry their food in a deep fryer, like we sometimes do now. Instead they used a pan and cooked their food over a fire), and simmered their food (the ancient Greeks simmered their food by cooking their food in a pan over hot charcoals). Simmered food Back to Room 3
