Moroccan cookery book
We just have to share our enthusiasm for this fabulous book The Food of Morocco by Paula Wolfert which has been receiving rave reviews. She has an impeccable pedigree having won the prestigious Julia Child Award three times, The James Beard Award five times, The M. F. K. Fisher Award, The Tastemaker Award and been a finalist for the British Andre Simon Award.
You can tell that this has been a labour of love with incredible attention to detail. Paula Wolfert is passionate about Moroccan cuisine having spent almost 50 years in pursuit of authentic Moroccan food.
Lavishly photographed and packed with tantalizing recipes, The Food of Morocco also provides helpful tips on preparation techniques. For anyone seriously interested in Morrocan cuisine this is the perfect companion to her classic, Couscous and Other Good Food from Morocco.

We suspect that Andy Harris probably spent a little longer than a month researching and eating his way around Marrakech in order to produce this fabulous cookbook. Published by Australian publishers Hardie Grant, this book is for sale worldwide via Amazon and features all the different tastes and culinary diversity that Marrakech has to offer.
The excellent food photography by David Loftus makes the recipes incredibly appealing. We especially like the way that the book is laid out – starting with breakfast through to desserts. Also, many of the recipes featured include ingredients that you are likely to have at home, as well as some harder-to-find together items which can be found nowadays in most big city supermarkets and specialist shops. Recipes include things you’d expect like stuffed baby vegetables, harissa, mint tea and green bean salad, and things you might not, like Figs with Almond Milk Ice Cream and Orange Flower Donuts. Delicious!
