If you've been cooking and baking the past months and you ran out of ideas, here's something you can try: a 4000 years old Mesopotamian meal consisting of 4 intricate dishes and a loaf of bread.
This meal was tried by Bill Sutherland, a professor of conservation biology at the University of Cambridge. Bill shared his journey on Twitter.
Bored Panda reached out to Professor Bill Sutherland to find out more about his Mesopotamian cooking experience.
Bill heard about the recipes from Dr. Moudhy Al-Rashid, who’s “a real expert on Mesopotamian culture.” He bought the book about the Yale Collection and thought “it would be fun to try and cook them.“
This was about an hour of planning and a couple of hours cooking,” said Bill. But in no way did he expect so many to take interest in his peculiar Twitter thread. “Currently, 3.7 million people have seen this,” the professor said in disbelief.
