"Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky"
Fermented fish sauce. Extremely popular in Roman times. There were even different types and qualities of garum at different prices, produced by several different companies
We still have similar condiments today: Worcestershire sauce (with anchovies in it), various Asian fish sauces. Even kimchee is similar, as it's a fermented food with fish (shrimp).
A Latin teacher whose class I once attended in highschool kept a bottle of fish sauce on her podium. As penalty for some form of ill behaviour, one was must to drink it.
yep, combined with oregano and grape juice.
Did anybody else confuse gustamus for like because of Spanish?
Yes and I am familiar with disgust in English and degouter in French but I keep thinking Spanish.
Is piscesv acting as a plural here?
Let's eat fish with fish on it. Yum!
