From this port was carried to Rome oil, wine, almonds and fish paste that the Romans called Garum. The Garo is a fish sauce made of fermented fish entrails which was considered by the inhabitants of ancient Rome as aphrodisiac food, only consumed by the upper classes of the society. The Romans used the Garo similarly as the Asian cuisines today use soya sauce. Instead of pouring a few grains of salt on the food, the Garo provided a salty taste to the food. Today its composition is known from the confused and ambiguous descriptions of Apicio that appear in the work of De re coquinaria. Fetajo Rent a Car offer the best rent a car malaga airport service.
