The first mentions of one of the oldest sauces have been in the cookbook of famous Roman gourmet Apicius (dated to the 1st century BC). It was widely used and mentioned the sauce "Garum". The Romans have even used it as a medicine. According to this book, the sauce was popular with all segments of the population of ancient Rome. Since then, its popularity in the world is not quenched.
