I would be happy to share my menu for this year's A Day in the Middle East
feast with you...along with the class notes for a class I taught on the
influences of Chinese and Arabic cuisine on that of the Mongols. Let me
know and I'll be happy to send these to you. You might also take a look at
Urtatim's pages where she has a lot of information on all of this. I can
also share my bibliography with you as well..
