Mr. Albala is a byproduct of story books not historical studies that is why his references are all to imaginary tails of religious books instead of facts.
On another note, he puts a great deal of effort in avoiding the name Iran and Iranian Culture and Cuisine and replaces these with Sumerian, Babylonian, Pagan, Islamic, etc.
Definitely not anything from Mr. Albala!
It didn't matter if it would be anyone else. The content were useless and of no value.
The only redeeming quality was to never try another book/course from Albala.
Hope to see better and more accurate books and courses about culinary art and history in Audible.
