Stomping grapes and dining like Romans

Roman vegetable seller.jpg
The Redpath Museum is holding an an evening in ancient Rome. It's a three-course Roman banquet (in
Latin, it's called a 'cena'). It's part of Archaeology Month at the museum.

You not only get to eat like Romans, you also learn about their diet and help prepare some of the meal. The event is in both English and French, and it's for the whole family. 

Stephanie Maurel is leading the feast.
She's a Concordia grad in Classics and Archaeology. She talks with our host Sonali Karnick about stomping grapes, mixing spices and the Roman love of honey.
