They learned about ingredients commonly used and rules which were usually followed.

After displaying posters students made their own meals using ingredients they had brought from home, they made Greek pancakes served with sesame and honey, salads, snacks made of raisins and nuts. They ate their meals together In this way they could have had a glimpse into ancient Greek eating habits.
