Pages From




Ibn Sayyar al-Warraq

Edited by

Kaj Öhrnberg and Sahban Mroueh


I have reproduced here a number of pages from the manuscript published by the Finnish Oriental Society as Studia Orientalia 60, eliminating footnotes so as not to violate the editors' copyright on their material. The original is a collection of cookbooks compiled in the tenth century. One of the books it contains is attributed to Yahya ibn Khalid al-Barmaki, vizier of Harun al-Rashid, who died in 805.

If you are interested in translating this cookbook into English, let me know.

[I now have one volunteer working on it, but there might be enough work for more]
