PlantCult

We visited PlantCult, the project hosted by the University of Thessaloniki.

Where do our culinary traditions come from? How have they evolved? And how are they still very much the same?

PlantCult investigates the food cultures of ancient Europe through analysing plant remains, ancient texts, and experimenting with cooking vessels, trying to discover old cooking techniques and recipes. The project offers an insight into how people have transformed plants into meals.

Tania Valamoti is the archaeologist behind the project. Fascinated by traditional products and cooking techniques, she started PlantCult.

Together with Tania and the students of the University of Thessaloniki we cooked delicious food like the Greeks would do in ancient times. We tasted history!

Learn more about PlantCult on their website, and follow them on Facebook.
