World Cheese Spread Collection. Roman Moretum. Roman Empire

$20.25/6 oz

6oz Hand Made. Garum Moretum is probably the first cheese spread known to Western civilization. First the Greeks, and then the Romans helped spread (no pun intended) this cheese spread around the classical world from the time of Athens, during the whole Roman Empire and into Byzantine times, Moretum consists of fresh cheese, a little vinegar and spices and herbs. There are accounts of very simple Moretum, probably enjoyed by peasants and elaborate mixtures that included olives and capers enjoyed by the upper class. Chef Lippeā€™s Moretum can accommodate both versions as it is handmade by order. The moment you buy it online, is the moment it is made.
