One of the earliest cookbooks in recorded Western history, De re Coquinaria (On the Subject of Cooking), is based on the recipes by Marcus Gavius Apicius, a wealthy Roman merchant and connoisseur gourmand who lived during the reign of Emperor Tiberius Caesar Augustus (14 AD – 37 AD). Apicius, famous for his love of food, often featured exotic spices from faraway India – cardamom, cumin seed, coriander seed, fennel, Indian spikenard, and saffron – in many dishes. Our Roman SMART Cuisine™ recipes, based on Apicius’s writings, demonstrate the preparation of delectable dishes that require minimal cooking skills and for very affordable cost per serving.
Note: All SMART Cuisine™ cooking is done using an electric skillet.

Acharya Charak, born in Northern India around 300 BC, is considered the “father of medicine and nutrition." He codified his cooking in Charaka Samhita, perhaps the oldest cookbook (written in Sanskrit), where he states, “Wholesome diet is essential for good health and to prevent diseases.” Since ancient times, India has been known for the use of a variety of restorative herbs and spices that help strengthen and maintain the immune system.
