Ova et Ostreas

by Anonymous

Dear Latin Teacher,


Please Translate from Latin to English:

Coquus ova et ostreas gustationi coquere voluit.




Dear Anonymous,

The cook wanted to cook eggs and oysters for the gustatio.

A gustatio is a tasting or appetizer. Romans made a banquet into three courses, the gustatio (tasting), prima mensa (main course), and secunda mensa (dessert).

Eggs were characteristically part of the gustatio.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin Teacher.

Sincerely,

John
