The article discusses the author's experience of writing a biblical cookbook full of foods from the Old and New Testaments. He and his friend Susan, who used to be a professional caterer whose specialty was Middle Eastern cuisine, spent countless hours in the library, pouring through archaeological journals, biblical commentaries, histories of agriculture and food in the Middle East and Mediterranean, Jewish and Christian folklore. In 1986, they published "The Good Book Cookbook," the first of its kind.
