Pharaoh Tries Pie

Pharaoh Tries Pie

Pharaoh Hatshepsut is sampling one of those new sweet potato pies everyone’s gotten into a kerfuffle about this Thanksgiving.

Obviously sweet potatoes wouldn’t have been available to the ancient Egyptians since they’re native to South America, but we do know the Egyptians made early galette-like pies using fruit, nuts, and honey. Drawings of them can be found on the tomb walls of Ramses II.
