The Banquet of the Learned - Episode Four: Galen

Galen (129-c.210 CE), the great Roman medical writer and personal physician to Emperor Marcus Aurelius, and the humors will be the focus of this episode. After antiquity, Humoralism spreed across the world (we still have the remnants of the philosophy today) making him well worthy a look.

Among his corpus is writings on food and diet which includes a number of curatives. None of my chosen curatives are poisons/toxic so let's see what they taste like!
