In the discussion concerning the banana recipe, the name of the author
was given as Ibn al Mahdi Al-Warraq. However, in the follow-up it was
given as Abu Muhammad al-Muzaffar ibn Nasr ibn Sayyar al-Warraq. I am
familiar with the latter and have not found a reference to the former
online. I am a little confused on this point. Are these the same
person, deifferent people, or the result of a typo? Was the original
citation from al-Kitab al-Tabikh (The Book of Dishes)?

Will the real al-Warraq please stand up?
