-- Meat balls (13th c. Andalusian cookbook)
-- Sinab - Mustard Sauce (13th c. Andalusian cookbook)
-- Barida - chicken salad with cucumbers, almonds, and pomegranate
seeds (9th century Baghdad, by Ibrahim ibn al-Mahdi (i'd never made
this and was eager to try it out)
-- Torta of Herbs for the Month of May (cheese, greens, and herb pie) (Platina)
-- Lauzinaj (almond paste wrapped in phyllo) (14th c. Book of the
