A message from Miss Newton

Dear Class 3,

Next week on Tuesday, I am going to be sharing with you how to make Libum. I bet you are thinking, what is Libum? Libum is an Ancient Roman Cheese Bread. 

The Roman's were very resourceful and were able to seek many ingredients including Cheese! Particularly soft cheese, for our recipe we are going to use Ricotta.

One really important thing you must know is that Roman's often covered their food with hot bricks when cooking it or used an enclosed pot. You will need to either use a casserole dish for your cooking, a metal pot with a lid that can go in the oven or a large tray with another tray that can be placed over the top.  (Please tell an adult about this part)

If you really can't find anything then please do not worry, just bake your rolls uncovered. 

The ingredients you will need are as follows:

145g Flour

250g Ricotta or dairy free cream cheese

1 egg or 30ml oil

8 Bay leaves (if you only have a few that will do)

Quarter of a jar of Honey (This will need to be warmed up at the end of cooking the rolls, Look out for the instructions in my video)

I look forward to seeing how your Libum turns out and also seeing what you think of it.

Love from Miss Newton


A dish like this would be perfect but whatever you have will do.
