Scheherazade Cooks! 1960, Wadeeha Atiyeh: Near Eastern or Persian recipes woven into the delightful Scheherazade fable. The Sultan married a new wife each evening, then had her beheaded in the morning. Then Scheherazade arrived with her recipes! Her dishes were so wonderful that the Sultan had his scribes to write her recipes in gold on parchment. Near Eastern historian Wadeeha Atiyeh wrote this cookbook with recipes for kebabs and shish-kebabs, lamb, yogurt and flat bread, many cookies and cakes, and more.
John Alcorn did the illustrations. The cookbook was published in 1960 by Gramercy, New York. Hard cover book with dust jacket. 191 pages. The dust jacket has many little tears, and small pieces are missing. It is faded, and a 1″ by 3″ rectangle has been cut from the bottom of the back part of the dust jacket. This cookbook is in nearly as-if-new condition. The cover is in fine shape. Something (probably a book plate) has been torn from the fly leaf. The hinges are perfect, the binding is sound. The pages are completely clean and clear.
