Al-Baghdadi is 13th Century middle eastern and al-Warraq is 10th
century middle eastern. Between the two of them, they provide an
enormous range of period recipes from that part of the world.
You can find worked out versions of some of the al-Baghdadi recipes
in the _Miscellany_, on my site. If you want some al-Warraq recipes,
email me and I'll send you some worked out ones that will go in the
next edition of the Miscellany when we get around to doing it.
