“[…] this is an impressive piece of scholarship and a joy to read both for pleasure and for more sober historical reflection on the ways medieval bourgeois Arab Muslim, and also Christian and Jewish urbanites, enjoyed themselves at table.” David Waines, Dept of Religious Studies, Lancaster University, Journal of Semitic Studies, Vol. 54,
2009.

"[...] this is a major resource that should be in every university library and will be consulted for years to come by anyone who is interested in the history of cuisine in the Middle East." Daniel Martin Varisco, Hofstra University, Review of Middle East Studies, 2009
