I searched online for a Tagine cooking book. The reviews on this one came up trumps, so I ordered it. The other buyer reviews didn't let me down. I love this book. Simple, easy and absolutely delicious recipes! A must buy for anyone wanting to experiment with Moroccan cooking :P

I bought this book as a present for my son as he has a Tagine. He uses it a lot and has cooked lots of recipes from it. The recipes are easy to follow.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 11 March 2013
I found this book to be a very good introduction for me to tagine and other Moroccan cooking. It is very well laid out, the photography is excellent and there are plenty of good recipes to keep you interested. There are a number of fairly simple recipes and an introductory chapter covering items needed for other recipes in the book like preserved lemons and harissa paste, but there are plenty of recipes with far from obvious combinations of spices, seeds and other ingredients that work very well. I've attempted six of the meat recipes and all worked well, so I'm sure I'll be attempting several of the others.

Meat lovers may find that the proportion of meat recipes is a little low, and there are possibly too many "sweet things and drinks" but overall this is a good book.

The contents page looks like this:

the secrets of tagines 6
traditional lamb tagines 20
beef, kefta and sausage tagines 38
chicken and duck tagines 52
fish and seafood tagines 68
vegetable tagines 82
couscous dishes 100
skewers, roasts and pan fries 114
vegetable side dishes 144
salads 164
soups and small bites 188
sweet things and drinks 206
index 236

Had been given a tagine and wanted a proper recipe book for it. Recipes in the book are more varied than those I find in magazines or in the instructions, and so far have all been successful. Recommended.

The recipes are so easy to follow and they taste fantastic.

Al Fes sauces are a bit expensive so get 6 bottles for an easier meal.
there is a shortage of outlets, and they wont mix the bottles!

Otherwise the Book does what it says, it will teach you step by step what to do and how to do it correctly, I was surprised by the tenderness of the cooked lamb, in lamb tagine i became addicted, so this week its beef, next week its gotta be chicken !/4 qtrs

My friend cooked some dishes from this while we were on holiday. They were so fabulous I just had to get back and buy the book. All the recipes are easy to follow, ingredients widely available, and results are perfect every time. Would also appeal to vegetarians are there are numerous recipes, but even the fish or meat ones could be adapted. Good for coeliac a too as any recipe that uses couscous can be adapted by using rice instead. I particularly make the Harissa rice rather than couscous.....my coeliac vegetarian daughter is looking forward to her next visit. Oh yes....the spiced honey aubergine are a must as well as the keftas .... I could go on! Just buy the book.....you won't be disappointed :)
