For more than two and a half thousand years the remains of a banquet that fed kings and diplomats, high priests and nobleman, lay in what was to be one of the most spectacular archaeological discoveries of the 20th century: the burial mound of King Midas, King of the Phrygians.
For the Channel 4 programme, food expert and journalist Fuchsia Dunlop, aided by actor and presenter Ralf Little, examined the evidence found in the chamber in order to realise an incredible dream - the recreation of King Midas' funeral feast.
Digiguide had this listed as a history documentary and i have to agree with them as they explore food that was around at that time, giving a historical perpspective. However, those of you that like your cooking shows should also really like this. They give recipies for anything they make and there are some gorgeous looking Mediteranian dishes on show.
