193:365 Hippocrates' prescription

Anna: Hippocrates was a strong believer in the healthful benefits of barley, recommending a barley based diet for the sick until they got well.



This is the finished result of a recipe from The Philosopher's Kitchen, which would have been at home on any ancient Greek or Roman table, Herbed Barley with Pancetta.

The ancients knew good food. Even my barley hating elder daughter enjoyed it - once she got around the fact that it was... well... barley.
