The world’s oldest written recipe is a recipe for beer!

It seems that the one of the oldest written recipes in the world is a recipe for beer! This Sumerian tablet is from about 3000 BC, more than 5000 years ago, and describes a recipe for beer made from fermented barley flour, but also from dates, coriander or cardamom. The result would be a very strong Sumerian beer, complemented by floating pieces of bread. Pretty amazing!
