Book Details

The culmination of years of research, this evocative volume looks in detail at the history and geography, customs and festivities, as well as all the local ingredients, and presents a mouthwatering selection of classic recipes, beautifully photographed. Hospitality is of utmost importance in Morocco. Offering, sharing and receiving are intertwined and, even in the humblest of homes, a guest will be offered dates to dip in milk, or a simple glass of milk flavoured with rosewater, sometimes with scented petals floating on top. Freshly baked or griddled bread, scented sweetmeats or fruit may also be offered to welcome guests and wherever you go in the country a glass of hot, sweet mint tea is the essence of hospitality, friendship, family gatherings and trade. This is just the beginning. What has yet to come is a feast for the senses. Spicy and scented, fruity and sweet, offering creative combinations of cumin and ginger, honey and cinnamon, saffron and rose chillies and turmeric, nuts, marinated olives and preserved lemons, served in painted, earthenware bowls and tagines, Moroccan food is both exciting and inspiring. It is no wonder that the cuisine has been described as the ‘perfumed soul’ of the culture.
