Last Supper

Not sure if this is the proper place for this thread. I ran across an interesting article about what may or may not have been served at the Last Supper.
I do not wish to have this turn into a religious discussion. But, I was wondering if there is anyone here who may have some insight on ancient food traditions for that part of the world at that time.
Here is a link to the article I read.
Last Supper Menu - Jesus's Last Supper - Delish.com
Maybe this will turn into a very interesting topic.
What do y'all think about this?

it is interesting, but outside of bread and wine, anything else is speculation. you can't even use any version of a bible as a source since they were written many, many years later.

the best way to go would be to try to accurately research what poor people would have had at a seder at that time, which would be nearly impossible since the facts of such would have been influenced by the change in time over 2 millenia.

Yep. They as much as said so in the article, but they were determined to get an article out of it. It is an interesting topic though, but since the food was not the focus, no one wrote it down.

Let's see, Thursday is payday so they probably ordered take-out. What else would you expect a dozen or so guys out on their own for the evening to do.

They probably ordered from JFC (Jerusalem Fried Couscous). With sides of hummus and pita. Toss in the special black olives stuffed with goat cheese and you're done.

Maybe they just had bread and wine. That is all that is mentioned.

Unleavened bread, likely made with ground Amaranth or Millet.
