Sample text

The pestle and mortar used for pounding meat, vegetables, and other ingredients that contain moisture were made of stone. Dry ingredients such as spices, sugar, and salt were pounded in brass mortar. N§ãif ‘nougat’ was cooked in a rounded pot with three legs to prevent the pot from revolving while beating and whitening the candy away from the fire. As al-Warr§q stipulated, the kitchen stove mustawqad was to be large enough to accommodate more than one pot. ’ Within the course of the recipes in the book, other cooking implements were mentioned such as a trivet called daykad§n.

Besides, comparing al-Warr§q’s corresponding version with the Egyptian one gives us a unique glimpse into alWarr§q’s process of gleaning his material from the copious resources he had in hand, and makes us appreciate his choices even more. The impact of al-Warr§q’s cookbook, thereby, may better be perceived by examining representations of the Baghdadi Abbasid 71 Here are my citations: 1. The third chapter (p. 12), the fourth (p. 13), and the supplementary passage (p. 266) of the Egyptian book are identical with al-Warr§q’s chapters on drinking water (Chapter 110, and the opening section of Chapter 111).

104 On such stoves, most of the Abbasid dishes were cooked and the fuel used was mostly firewood and coal. When firewood was used, the non-smoking varieties were preferred. Otherwise smoke would be blown back to the pot and spoil its flavor. Food was cooked in different degrees of heat. High heat required waqÊd ê9adÊd; medium heat, waqÊd mubtadil; and low heat, waqÊd layyin. 107 To keep the food clean while cooking and prevent flies from falling into it after it has been cooked, the pots were kept covered with their own lids and the serving bowls were carried to the table covered, too.
