Untitled[edit]

Started wikifying this but got calledd away. I will come back later to finsh.Aholcombe 04:55, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

This is quite confusing as the article's called arab cuisine but it only refers to Gulf Arab states. Why dont you merge other arab cuisine articles(like n.african, syrian etc) into this one

This page is so far from finished, I edited a small portion, it needs a lot of work though. For starters the bedouin are not exclusive to Saudi Arabia. --Alsharifa 15:41, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Did someone seriously list pork as a common component of Arab cooking? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.93.70.139 (talk) 14:49, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Major Changes[edit]

I have moved the information about the specific Gulf cuisine to a new article Arab Gulf cuisine and retained this one for the wider diversity of Arab cuisine.

I have added a little bit about specific Arab cuisines.

Vandalism[edit]

I'm removing

"rab r ugly tghey wear weird foods n they drees like thir very cold even n da summer"

for now. Perhaps someone with more anti-vandalism knowledge could look into it. Thanks.

Doner kebab is Turkish cuisine and a unique cuisine, this is wrong should not be done kebab.Arap — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.160.18.212 (talk) 20:06, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Pork[edit]

Even Arab Chirstians don't eat that much pork. I removed it, unless there is an authentic and trustworthy citiation that says so, Prok is not an ingredient. --Maha Odeh 09:36, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

More Work Needed[edit]

I've added a lot, but it still needs a lot of work. Anyone that knows about food is welcome. --Maha Odeh 11:05, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Need article on baharat[edit]

Need article on the spice mixture baharat, used in the Near East and Gulf States particularly for mutton dishes. Can anyone help? Badagnani (talk) 07:07, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Iraq an Atab country?[edit]

I thought it has to do nothing with Arabs, the official language is Persian. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.160.59.164 (talk) 18:56, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

It's an Arab country and the official language is Arabic, you may be confusing it with Iran. --Maha Odeh (talk) 12:21, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Undid Revision[edit]

The use of Palestine is more appropriate because this cuisine existed prior to the creation of Israel. --Maha Odeh (talk) 12:21, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I have noticed that the article did not mention the Saudi cuisine. The Saudi cuisine is quite diversified due to the fact that the country is fairly extensive. Unfortunately, the Saudi traditional dishes are found to be rather local even between the provinces in the country, not to mention the Arabic World. I believe this is largely attributed to the fact mentioned above about the country size as well as the lack of an effective promotion. Please read about the following traditional dishes popular in some Saudi provinces:

1- Kabsa كبسة. The most popular food in Saudi Arabia. 2- Marquq مرقوق. Quite popular in Alqassim,Hail and Riyadh regions. 3- Saleeq سليق. AL-Taif city and throughout Macca region. 4- Hanith حنيذ. growing to gain populacity, originally from the southern region. 5- Asidah عصيدة. Very popular in Al-baha and Assair regions. 6- Gareesh جريش. Pupolar in Alqaseem region.

These are examples only. There are many others in each region that I might not know myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.23.56.9 (talk) 16:59, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Somalia[edit]

Interesting section on Somali cuisine, but as this page is about Arab cuisine, should Somali cuisine be included here? It would make perfect sense if the article was about Islamic cuisine, but I suspect Somali cuisine should be on a different page. RantingMrP (talk) 09:03, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Somalia is an Arab state and is part of the Arab world. Hence, why its cuisine has been included in this article alongside those of other Arab states. Middayexpress (talk) 17:35, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
