See Jean Bottéro, “Küche,” Reallexikon der Assyriologie 6/3–4 (1981), pp. 277–298; and in a more popular format his “La plus vieille cuisine de monde,” L’Histoire 49 (Oct., 1982), pp. 72–82. Both articles are in French. The second of them appeared in English translation in 1985 under the title of “The Cuisine of Ancient Mesopotamia” (Biblical Archaeologist 48/1, pp. 36–47). A complete edition (in French) is to appear shortly in the series “Mesopotamian Civilizations” (Eisenbrauns).
