Ok, so lets say your hungry. You can just go to the kitchen and get a snack or something. I guess you could ask your parents to cook you something but chances are they'll say something like "no, do it yourself," or something like that. Well its a whole other story in Ancient Egypt. Rich Families would hire servants JUST TO DO THEIR COOKING! crazy right? I think it would be nice to have a servant do all my cooking just because I would'nt have to do anything, but it just sounds lazy! Anyway, average families would have the wife do all the cooking. (how sexest!) So the wife would probably be making bread or stew since that seemed to be all the rage back then. You would stir salt, yeast, water, and flower in a clay pot, pat it flat with your palms, and let it to sit and rise for a little while. Next, you would put it an a clay oven. Ok, time out. Wouldn't clay burn? or melt? or something?! Hmm...seems kind of odd to me. So after its been in the oven for a while, they take it out and WHAMO!, they have bread. to cook vegetable stew, they would boil water over the clay stove, then dump all the veggies in there and this gravy stuff they made and then they would have a "delicious and nutrisious" meal, bread to dip in vegetable stew.
