In this volume, we find authentic, traditional foods of the what the author calls "Oriental" but is actually Middle East - that is from the Balkans to Persia, and from Arabia and Egypt to the Caucasus.

The author seems to be of Armenian extraction and is "formerly of Constantinople" [Istanbul]. He may have been in the food business there, either as a professional cook or a food merchant. In fact, in the last pages of this book, he offers special oriental ingredients for which his readers can send. For example: ripe black olives from Greece, Italy and Turkey retail at 15 to 20 cents per pound, dry chick peas are 8 to 10 cents a pound, cracked wheat is 5 to 6 cents per pound and pine-cone seeds are 30 t0 35 cents per pound - all plus "an additional sum of 10 per cent of the value of the order, for packing purposes, etc."

He takes great pains to describe and introduce Middle Eastern cooking to his American audience, mentioning its long history, its economy, its simplicity of preparation, its healthful aspects and its good taste.
