Roman emperors, Arab scholars, and early travelers have all been drawn to the enchanting land that existed along the Nile River in Egypt. The astounding architecture, art, technology, ancient calligraphy, and literature has attracted researchers from all over the world. This book focuses on four aspects of Egyptian culture: a brief but thorough commentary on Egypt?s history, contemporary culture, beliefs, and food in a historical and present perspective. It also introduces some highlights of this fascinating country, although it is hard to do justice to all of them. Some information about demographics and festivals is also given. The main focus of the study, however, is on food and cooking, from staple dishes to more complex dishes, drinks, recipes, techniques to preserve food, and sample menus. This manuscript provides a brief glimpse into Egypt?s culture, beliefs, and food.
