Only the Rich Romans had a kitchen in their homes to produce food in. The poor had small grills and relied on Thermopolia (fast food). Sometimes in the day, the rich bought food at Thermopolia because it was fast and convenient. For breakfast Romans usually had a peice of bread and a bowl of beans or porridge. Porridge is an oatmeal like cereal make from barley or wheat. Lunch may be cheese and bread, olives, or celery. For dinner the poor could have chunks of fish with asparagus and a fig for dessert. For dinner wealthy Romans had special appetizers, mice cooked in honey, roasted parrots stuffed with dates, salted jellyfish, and snails dipped in milk. Drinks included plain water and hot water with herbs and honey. Wealthy women or their slaves shopped at the market for a selection of foods. Merchants kept playful monkeys and colorful parrots to attract customers. On the shelves items incluses fruits, live rabbits, chicken, geese, baskets of snails, and cuts of meats.
