This is a new edition of the 1944 classic by George Mardikian, America's first celebrity chef.
Omar Khayyam’s is an Armenian restaurant with a Persian name in an American city—San Francisco—and it is outstanding even in that gourmet’s paradise of a town. In this cookbook for Americans, George Mardikian reveals the culinary secrets that made his establishment so famous. The recipes are for Armenian food, prepared in the Armenian fashion, but seasoned to the American palate. The dishes described are exotic and different, but thrifty, healthful, and easy, even for amateur chefs, to prepare. His food is sophisticated enough for parties, but economical and well balanced enough to serve the whole family.
