Apicius is an Ancient Roman cookbook containing recipes from around the 4th or 5th century AD. Many of the recipes are probably much older and may even be of Greek origin. Eating Apicius recreates some of these recipes and gives you the chance to taste the food of Ancient Rome. This is the food that was eaten by Aristocrats in Triclinia to workers in Popinae - so whatever your social standing, come and discover what the Romans can still do for you.

When & Where
Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.
We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.
Our courses are learning for doers. Every one of our courses, whether it's electronics or coding, writing or making, is powered by the same magic. Bring your curiosity and a little bit of imagination, and we'll amaze you with what you can do!
Our main base of operations is a three-storey, 3000 square foot Industrial Revolution-era former weavers’ cottage centrally located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We are less than ten minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations, and just two minutes walk from the Arndale Shopping Centre.
