The second in our series of Aramco cookbooks, "Al Hasa Cookbook," is now available for downloading. Published in 1976, it features recipes from 340 different contributors from the three Aramco communities, Northrop in Khobar and U.P.M. In the "Gourmet Specialties" chapter, you will even find a few recipes contributed by some Aramco dads!
Along with recipes for family standards, you will find instructions for cooking an elephant, preserving a husband, hedgehog cake, and even homemade pudding mix.
"An idea in 1974, a few plans in 1975 and a reality in 1976. That is the brief history of the Al-Hasa Cook Book. Through the combined efforts of the committee and their respective women's groups, we have compiled what we hope will be a representation of culinary pleasures of all our areas. With the current expansion of the population and the availability of more products in the local markets, we can broaden the scope of our previously limited menus and thus enrich our daily lives. The recipes in this book may not have been laboratory tested, but their merit has been established by the most critical group of all - husbands and families."
We hope you rediscover some old favorites from childhood and find some new ones for your Thanksgiving table or your next family gathering!
