In the time of Caesar Augustus Romans used to eat very differently from us. Sweet flavors were combined into main courses, like soups and game dishes. Anchovies’ pouring was utilized as dressing, to spice up things to eat. But before Emperors' time (753 BC – 27 BC), ancient Roman food was more likely today. Romans' ancestors (latini, carpenati, falisci) were farmers and shepherds, so their way of cooking was simple and smart. Like the shepherd's bread, filled with cheese and meat, something that was created to last for many hours during their movements. Or the Gricia, the Amatriciana ancestor. Gricia is a simple sauce for handmade pasta, combining guanciale (cheek lard or jowl bacon) and seasoned pecorino cheese.
