The feasts of the Ancient Greeks were legendary, and many authors of the time have written about their richness and sophistication. That said, it’s rarely possible to cook anything from a historical cookbook, as both the ingredients and methods differ a lot from what we know and use today. However, this specific recipe is an exception, and it has been a success every time we’ve tried it. The secret stands in patiently boiling the meat in herb-scented water till super-tender. It is a trick that one could use as inspiration for many other recipes as well!
