The list author says: "This list contains items relevant to food in Jesus' time, if not specific to it. My favorite is 'Food at the Time of the Bible,' but different books serve different needs. I have reviews up on most or all of their product pages.
The first four are the most general, and likely to be the type of book you are looking for. I have tried to be specific enough for you to see the different focus' among them.
The others, while more specific and expensive, are also relevant to food in Jesus' time.
You might also be interested in my ListMania of Women in the Bible, and Jesus: A 1st Century Jew."
"This cookbook contains 18 biblical meals, 6 relating to the Gospels, each preceded by the biblical text, relevant history and notes on the biblical passage. There are ~9-12 recipes per meal, nicely presented but with small, black-and-white photos, followed by a meal-specific bibliography. It also contains a dated chronology of the events, maps, weights and measures, and 150 pages of food lore."
"This covers both meals women cooked, and foodís role in their culture. Culinary history, etiquette and customs, what Scripture forbade and why, the agricultural year, how things were processed (e.g., olive presses), food used at the Temple, how food was kept fresh, the Last Supper, and recipes. A lot of quality, in-depth information with numerous pictures of trees, food, where it was stored, etc."
"These are modern recipes that Mary herself may cooked- if she had the money, in some cases. Each entry is preceded with a biblical verse, and a short culinary/biblical background. Chapters (appetizers, entrees, etc.) include recipes on traditional dishes women cooked as well, such as Passoverís bitter herb salad. The back has modern information, such as where you can buy specialty ingredients."
"This book covers the production, medical uses, trade and marketing of salted fish and fish sauce in the Roman Empire. The methodology is similar the world over, both then and now, and there is a section on Palestine. Magdala, a coastal town several miles south of Capernaum, specialized in fish preservation, and among Jesusí many followers there were likely slaves and freedmen from there."
