Subject: [Sca-cooks] Dinner in the Topkapi Serai
Last night i - with the help of three other cooks - prepared a feast
for Mists Fall Investiture. It was a meal of dishes from the late
15th C. Ottoman cookbook written by Shirvani, as well as a few
recipes i reconstructed - dishes featured in late 15th and in 16th C.
menus, and some described by Europeans who ate in the Topkapi.
