Descriptions du produit

Al-Baghdadi's "Kitab al-Tabikh" was for long the only medieval Arabic cookery book known to the English-speaking world, thanks to A. J. Arberry's path-breaking 1939 translation as "A Baghdad Cookery Book", which was re-issued by Prospect Books in 2001 as "Medieval Arab Cookery". For centuries, it had been the favourite Arab cookery book of the Turks. The original manuscript is still in Istanbul, and at some point a Turkish sultan commissioned a very handsome copy, which can still be seen in The British Library in London. In the twentieth century the Iraqi scholar, Daoud Chelebi, produced a modern transcription which served as the basis for Arberry's translation. Charles Perry has re-visited the manuscript and discovered many possible errors and amendments that affect the interpretation of these essential recipes for the understanding of medieval Arab cookery. He has produced a new English translation incorporating these amendments and fully annotating his variations with the 'authorised' version. Scholars will now have a definitive text on which to work. They will also have this text in an inexpensive and handy format, just the thing for a learned lady's handbag.

Cuisine Fit for a Caliph 2 décembre 2007
Par Lilinah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This new translation by Charles Perry is a great improvement over A.J. Arberry's once-novel, now-dated 1930s translation of this legendary 13th century cookbook, which served the kitchens of the wealthy and powerful of the Near and Middle East for well over 300 years.

True, the writing style of these recipes is not like that familiar to most 21st C. Americans, with the exact quantity of every ingredient and every step of the process enumerated. However, the writing style is not much different from cookbooks written in other languages even today, such as those I purchased when I lived in Indonesia. And the recipes are quite useable by the adventurous cook. I've been cooking using al-Baghdadi's cookbook, in one form or another, for about 9 years. I am very happy to have it now in this convenient paperback format.

For those not accustomed to using these sorts of recipes, it may take a bit of courage and several experiments. But I'm sure that once you play with them a few times, you will find yourself rewarded by the opportunity to dine like a Caliph.

For those more cautious, but interested in the history of cookbooks, in the history of cuisines in general, and in Middle Eastern cuisines in particular, even if you don't cook from these recipes, this over 700 year old cookbook will be a fascinating study in the dining of the past.

THE BEST FOOD EVER 8 juin 2009
Par franz douskey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Finally, A Baghdad Cookery Book returns, rewritten clearly and with a human touch.
This is a vital book on Middle East cooking. My mother says that
Middle Eastern food is the best food ever. She's ninety-six.
She is never without cracked wheat, olive oil, figs and dates, tabouli (a finely chopped salad), etc.
The book is the work of two geniuses, and I'm grateful to have this book in my kitchen,
along with the unrelated, but important books by
Paul Blange, Paul Prudhomme and Emeril LaGasse.

Eat, eat, the best food ever.

A demonstration of appliaed erudition 13 juillet 2008
Par J. de Berchoux - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A welcome new edition of a fundamental book on classical Arab cooking. A good demonstration on how to go about reviewing and remaking a book that had already been accepted as a reference. Good read for the text and for the method.
