Much like potatoes in Northern Europe, tomatoes are such a staple of Mediterranean cuisine that it's easy to forget they only started eating them after the Columbian exchange. Up until very late 15th century - at the absolute earliest - there were no tomatoes in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Syria, or any of the other Mediterranean countries where it's almost imaginable that there was a time when they weren't part of their diet. Certainly, there were no tomatoes in the cuisines of Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Israel, etc. Suppose the ancient Mediterranean were to somehow acquire tomatoes. Would they have liked them? If so, how would they have been eaten?
