A Real Gem if You Like Moroccan Food
on 8 November 2012
The craze for tagine cookery started when the beautiful earthenware funnelled pots which the Moroccans use to cook their casseroles, became available in our shops. This is a great little book, even if you have not yet acquired a tagine, as it offers a large number of delicious Moroccan recipes from soups and pastries to couscous and tagines.
The contents are divided up into sensible sections with such delights as how to preserve lemons in the Kemia and First Course section, to refreshing salad with cucumber and mint or garlic fried chillies in the Tagine section. I can really recommend the Moroccan Chicken and Harissa, and the Quail with Raisons - both delicious! The fish section is particularly useful as we are all being nagged to eat more fish for our health and there are some quite novel recipes here.
Every dish is very clearly laid out with its ingredients, how many it should feed, and preparation and cooking times. The methodology is clearly described and there is a full page picture for each dish so that you have a good idea of what your finished product should look like. Many of the recipes offer useful variations on the theme so that you can repeat the recipe with a slightly different flavour.
If you like Moroccan food there is little doubt that you will love this little book. A real gem!
