Pictured here is the Assyrian Kitchen Ziggurat of Nimrud, an edible centerpiece. These tasty towers embraced the theme of preservation and served as a beautiful decorative piece at the King Ashurnasirpal Gala. We prepared an assortment of ancient Assyrian indigenous foods. From barley bread, preserved okra, cucumbers, fresh cheese, nuts in honey, pickled apples to Buried Cheese. Delish!

    You could open a restuarant with that as an appetizer, and you would probably sell many holiday gift baskets with thoseband more non-perishable foods. Looks delicious!
