ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The complex cuneiform tablet in the picture is considered the oldest cookbook, found in the city of Babylon from the Hammurabi era back in 1750 BC.
The cookbook contains 25 recipes which 21 of them are about cooking beef, goat, pork, deer, fish, birds, and eggs; other 4 are about cooking vegetables. It contains the list of components, spices, and herbs, but it doesn't provide instruction on how to cook and cooking time needed for each meal.
As you see in the second picture, Mesopotamians are known to have sophisticated kitchens; in the ancient times as well as modern days.
