Most Egyptian cooking was done in clay ovens, and wood was used to fuel the fires that kept the ovens hot. Food in Egypt was cooked in many different ways. You could either bake the food, boil it, stew it, fry it, grill it, or roast it. Evidence from the tombs shows that Egyptians used much silverware in the making of food. They used storage jars, bowls, pots, pans, ladles, sieves, and whisks while making the food. Most people had clay dishes but the wealthy had dishes of bronze, silver, or gold. Some examples of Egyptian food are loaves of bread, stewed lentils, dried fish, honey cakes, etc. They also drank barley beer and wines.
