Odd, i thought her book was about Ottoman cooking.
When Shirvani translated al-Baghdadi's Kitab al-Tabikh - and altered
nearly every one of al-Baghdadi's recipes, some very very much - and
then added his own 80 or so recipes, he clearly didn't know what
atraf al-tibb was.
So atraf al-tibb doesn't figure into Ottoman cuisine.
Or does Hauviette have another book out on more general Medieval
Arabic-language cooking as well?
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
