Roman recipes:
[Cottage] cheese and honey
Mel et caseum)

By Apicius VII, 303

Original recipe: Mel et caseum aut parare suillam et ius profanum aut cum sal, oleum et concisi coriandri album. [this needs checked]

Translation: Prepare [cottage] cheese either with honey and broth [brine] or with salt, oil and chopped coriander.


  • Cottage cheese (fresh curd)
  • Clear honey
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cream
  • carraway or chopped chives
  • (optional) a little sugar


  • Drizzle the honey over the cottage cheese and serve immediately.
  • Feta cheese is also a good starting point. Other cheeses can be used to suit individual tastes.
