Obviously very skilled in self promotion and getting press for a product launch. 
His website is rather amusing.

He's a food archaeologist! I wonder what the Tudor Cooks are making of this.

Have I mentioned that Zingermans sells  garum colatura. To my mind that's more unusual.

Without giving too much away, it is made using a 15th-century Medieval Old English recipe that took me ten years to recreate." (It'll take you that long if you think that 15th c English and Old English are the same thing. :-/ Ten years? Was he busy carving the Lord's Prayer on the inside of the storage bottles?) WTF?
> And he wants to launch a product line, naturally.
