1. What sort of spices do you typically use?
Coriander seeds, cinnamon, cumin, gum mastic, peppercorns, rosewater, 
saffron, mint, garlic, fresh cilantro - but coriander seeds, and 
cumin are not listed.

3. What ingredients do you usually put into a sausage?
No choice of lamb, and all that haram pork! I've made sausage several 
times, and always of lamb, which is not an option.

4. How do you serve a meat dish?
I cook meat cut in chunks with many herbs and spices, fruits and/or 
vegetables, and no wine!

8. Who do you cook for?
A groups of gourmets, poets, and sons of caliphs.

Sigh, clearly al-Baghdadi's Kitab al-Tabikh is not included :-(

Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
