To: sca-cooks at lists.ansteorra.org

 

Tallan Family wrote an amazing list of Primary Sources English or  

Translated Sources. Even got me on some and I appreciate now having  

those web sites. What a nice Christmas present, thank you very much!  

There is one citation that has me a little lost as it seems to be an  

advertisement for a restaurant in Barcelona but you write:

al-Tuyibi al-Andalus? (Spanish c.1228-1243) (Archived)

(http://web.archive.org/web/20050206154555/http://www.ateneu.com/

I assume you are referring to a translation of Fernando de la Granja  

Santamaria's doctoral thesis. At David Friedman's instigation I tried  

to locate his heirs in Spain to obtain permission to translate the  

entire text into English. None of the Granja's listed in the Madrid  

area phone books knew anything about his heirs. As I felt I was  

running around in circles over that one, I only translated published  

the 30 pages he published of excerpts that I found available at the  

National Library in Madrid. (I must admit I have done nothing with  

that). Granja's entire translation is at the Computense University of  

Madrid. I did not go to see it in spite of the fact that Granja seems  

to have done an amazing job in his translation. I would be very  

interested in finding it on line if indeed it is. Alas it appears to  

me that you mean to site:

http://www.elsgnoms.com/receptes/arabigo.html

which is a reproduction of Granja's published excerpts in Spanish. It  

has been on the web for years and is very nice as it includes pretty  

pictures while the original 1960 publication has none.

Indeed I did mean to cite the latter, which appears to be affiliated

with the same restaurant (Atenu) in the link that no longer functioned.

 

Thanks very much for the correction!
