"Roman gourmet Apicius" is my Homeboy

"The first Western cookbook appeared a little more than 1,600 years ago. “De re coquinara” (concerning cookery) is attributed to a Roman gourmet named Apicius who, legend has it, poisoned himself upon learning that he could no longer afford to eat fancy food." --from "Pluck a Flamingo,"

Yep. I dig his vibe. Thanks to Eric for this one!
