Actually found his essay online, with some of his recipes. Really kind of disappointed; he doesn't take a good look at extant Arab recipes from the medieval period for a comparison and his recipes are modern-day ones that use tomato and hot peppers and vanilla. Glad I didn't buy the book.

However, I was inspired to see if Anna Martellotti's book was finally on AbeBooks. Two copies of it were. One of them is now on its way to me.
