Here’s a lunch enjoyed in Ancient Rome, crostini with broad beans and pecorino. Broad beans were used in voting, and also a common item on the dinner table
The Ancient Roman first course, the appetisers or starters gustatio, was made up of small dishes of broad beans, chickpeas, marinated cucumbers and artichokes. I’m slapping my broadbeans on bread with some pecorino cheese. The Romans liked pecorino too.
