Albert Leonard

Albert Leonard is a Research Associate at the Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East, and Professor Emeritus in both the departments of Classical Archaeology and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Arizona. He is an archaeologist who specializes in the social impact of interregional trade among the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean World. For more than four decades, Al has directed excavations at a number of sites in Italy, Greece, Portugal, Egypt, Cyprus, Israel and Jordan. Throughout his career, he has been active in educational outreach, and the Archaeological Institute of America has awarded him its Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award by which it “acknowledged and applauded the invaluable service that [he] has given to the archaeological community as an educator.”

As his alter ego, the Time Traveling Gourmet, Al combines a command of archaeological, historical, and literary material with culinary skills acquired at Le Cordon Bleu as well as the Culinary Institute of America (partially supported by a Robert A. Parker Wine Advocate Scholarship) in order to reconstruct (in the classroom or the kitchen) dishes described by such ancient authors as Archestratus of Syracuse, a 4th-century BCE Sicilian cook who has often been called the “Father of Gastronomy.” Al presently divides his time between Boston and California’s Russian River Valley, where he is a member of The Society of Wine Educators and the Northern Sonoma County convivium of Slow Food International. His latest book, Mediterranean Wines of Place: A Celebration of Heritage Grapes was published by Lockwood Press in the Spring of 2020.
