Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A lovely, glossy-paged book with a photograph to accompany every recipe. I work in Egypt a lot and have eaten a great deal of both Middle Eastern and north African dishes whilst staying there. I bought a couple of books because I didn't know where to start and I very much wanted to have a go myself. This was one of that first group of books that gave me a push in the right direction.

It is a terrific introduction to many new dishes and flavours. I've purchased more advanced books since but this book still has some of my favourites including lamb and okra in tomato sauce with spiced garlic, quince and chicken tagine, grilled beef with olives and citrus couscous and chicken chermoulla.

I suppose that the only downside, from the point of view of my tastebuds, is that many of the recipes use pulses (chickpeas, beans, lentils) and I hate pulses - but that's not the book's fault. Pulses are a central component in many north African dishes.

Each recipe has a clear title followed by preparation time, cooking time and the number of people that the recipe is designed to serve. A list of ingredients follows accompanied by step by step instructions. At the end of the instructions there is an estimate of fat and calorie values.

Most of the ingredients are readily available in my local supermarket, but there is a glossary of terms for ingredients that may be more unusual. There's a very useful conversion chart at the end for translating between metric and imperial measurements.

A really good introductory book. I am very glad that it kick-started me to try so many more new dishes.

I felt the need to stretch my cookery limbs and have a change from asian-inspired meals, and this book jumped off the shelf at me. There's a range of simple, well-described and beautifully photographed recipes, ranging from quick meals to slow-cooked tagines.

Some of the ingredients used aren't really to my taste (e.g. prunes and apricot in savoury dishes), but the recipes work great and still have plenty of flavour without them. The spiced cous-cous and rice meals are very filling and always go down well.

For those wishing to try Moroccan recipes, this book is perfect. Real value for money and recipes easy to prepare. I like the Chicken Tagines in particular. But everything I've tried has turned out really scrumptious. One of the best buys of Moroccan food ever.

Format: Paperback
I am a big fan of the Australian Women's Weekly series of cookery books. They are practical, straightforward and easy to use. I suppose that I would trade some of the pictures for a few more recipes but nevertheless there are 120 pages here - each recipe with its photograph opposite so I guess around 50 recipes (taking index and a useful glossary into account). Not many for a cookery book perhaps - but look at the price! It's a real bargain.

It is essentially just a collection of recipes with a short one page introduction - a welcome change from the self-indulgent "personal" cookbooks of which there seem to be so many (Actually I really enjoy them - but this is a good contrast!)

They cover the full range from appetisers through to sweets. 10 tagines - which is why I bought the book! Chicken and quince is excellent but then I am a fan of quince. Lamb and apricot tagine was also very good. The vegetable recipes were good but I thought a little uninspired - which dropped it a star.

So far I have not had any real difficulty getting the ingredients or with the recipes - but there are more to try!

Recommended for those who want to experiment with a cuisine they may be unfamiliar with.

Fantastic easy to follow recipes, delicious results. Like all books in the Australian Women's Weekly range this is another winner. Most recipes are also fairly healthy with low salt and fat. Good Vege recipes for non meat eaters as well as carnivore recipes. Only one recipe in there we didn't like containing Quince but that's just our taste. Impress your friends with a Moroccan dinner party easily cooked.

Love the flavours and ingredients of North African/Moroccan foods but never actually made any dishes myself so decided to buy this based on other reviews and the fact its reasonably priced. Only had for 2 weeks and have made a meal with a few of the recipes already, came out perfect and very tasty too. Will be used for years to come. Great buy.
