Live like a Roman with this stuffed dates recipe

Stuffed Dates - Ancient Roman Recipe

Dates aren’t the most popular fruit now but back in Ancient Rome, they were a delicacy and the above video demonstrates how to make stuffed dates. The recipe comes from a cookbook called Apicius, believed to have been written by Roman gourmet Marcus Gavius Apicius.


  • Dates
  • Walnuts
  • Pine nuts
  • Honey
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

And if you’re looking for an accompanying wine, I hear that a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon works well.
