Don't know if it would help but she could check the back issues of Saudi Aramco World on line and see if anything useful pops up.

Subject: [Sca-cooks] OT: Rome and medieval Egypt

Just had to pass on something I saw on the Atlantia list today.  
Rohesia Anven of Thessalonica was asking
<<< I have recently been curious about Egyptian culture (mostly as it  
would've related to the time of the Romans and earlier) but really in  
any way it could relate to SCA timeline. I am having trouble finding  
any resources for people who would like to create a persona or finding  
someone who has an Egyptian persona. Ive tried some online searching  
but to no avail. Anyone know of someone I can chat with about the  
subject? >>>

One of the responses was:
<<< Personally, I think dar Anahita is an excellent jumping off point  
for anyone looking to learn more about Near Eastern cultures. It may  
be past the timeframe you're most interested in, but Urtatim has am  
amazing wealth of information on her site: http://home.earthlink.net/~lilinah/directory.html
Molly >>>

Whoo Hoo, Urtatim!

I assume we don't know any more about Egyptian food of the Roman and  
Medieval era than we do of Byzantium. Which doesn't seem to be much,  
certainly no menus, right?


who I guess will soon have an Egypt-msg file, even if rather short.
