Eat Like the Gods

Mesopotamian cuisine evolved to satisfy gods who ate four times daily. We've recreated 62 recipes based on cuneiform sources, archaeological evidence, and my food travels to modern-day Turkey and Iraq.

I’ve consulted with Near Eastern scholars and food historians, ensuring the recipes are as authentic as possible, while being practical for the modern cook.

Drink Like the Gods

In a hymn to the beer goddess Ninkasi, a scribe recorded history’s first beer recipe 4,000 years ago.

 

We've collaborated with professional brewers to recreate brews such as date beer, pomegranate beer, honey beer, and more. 

Six Years Progress

I began writing Table of Gods in 2019. Since then I’ve traveled to ancient sites in modern-day Turkey and Iraq three times.

I’ve decided to self-publish to keep creative control and print a book that feels like an ancient Apple product. The result will be a coffee table book printed on art paper.

You’ll get three recipes from the book, and a monthly email with exclusive news about my progress toward self-publishing Table of Gods.

Table of Gods in the Media

I’ve been featured on TV, radio, newspapers, and podcasts.

 

I also have a YouTube channel where I produce documentaries and shorter videos about food and legends from ancient Mesopotamia. My videos have over 500,000 views.
