The English - Arabic Cookery Book.
- [Beirut, Dar-Al-Hayat,] June, 1950. 8vo. Wire-stitched into original green printed wrappers, pp. 239, interspersed with advertisements; wrappers very lightly rubbed, even browning due to paper stock. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author, a very rare bilingual (English and Arabic) cookery book with a fusion of British, Imperial and Arabic/Lebanese recipes. The interesting advertisements are sometimes even trilingual, with the occasional slogan in French. From the culinary point of view several recipes are a disgrace: the English lady manages to eliminate everything which makes Middle Eastern cookery delicious: mint, garlic, chilly, parsley, even the salt in houmus. In the preface, the author states that this book is the product of her 30 years in the Middle East. Axford, English Language Cookbooks p. 134. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
