Not just a collection of recipes, Paula Wolfert's exquisite love letter to Moroccan cuisine is a masterly comprehensive introduction to Moroccan culture through cooking. The book is beautiful ion every way--gorgeous photos, lovely typeface and smooth paper. It is a pleasurable object. The recipes are a nice selection of classics along with unusual regional recipes. Those that I've tried have been transcendent. I am a fan of Moroccan cooking and have worked my way through several cookbooks. Wolfe ...more
An incredible bread chapter!
Her writing is like reading a romance right down to the steamy parts;-)
Have to try the tomato magic!! pg 41
I am having so much fun with this cookbook! Paula Wolfert's recipes are accessible, even to someone like me who lives in a place where there aren't a lot of specialty ingredients. Making couscous by the method she describes yielded results that provoked immediate queries of "How did you get the couscous so fluffy?" from my guests. I've made several things from the book and read enough more recipes to know I want to make a lot more. I've never been to Morocco and only been to one Moroccan restaur ...more

Other than the fish & poultry recipes it looked to be an interesting cookbook. I was particularly interested in the breads, desserts, and beverages.

It's stop #9 on Summer Passport and we're in Africa!

This Moroccan cookbook has gorgeous photographs and a lot of interesting background on the various dishes and particular flavours that Moroccan food is known for (such as saffron, argan oil, and Moroccan cumin seed).
The recipes themselves are easy and delicious, bound to impress even your toughest dinner guest.

Check out my spanish blog's entry about this book:

This very elegant book makes a great decorative element in a house. It has beautiful pictures; magnificent drawings and delicious recipes. I loved it; though I couldn't fix any of the dishes because they are really complicated.

incredible eye-candy. the best cookbook i've seen of it's kind. i'm sure the recipes are good, she's paula wolfert, but i'm still too busy pretending i'm on an edible vacation to try any recipes. for lovers of moroccan food, this is a to-die-for book.
Beautiful pictures and descriptions of Morocco food adventure. I want to be Paula Wolfert, but I don't necessarily want to go through the work of trying her recipes, which invariably include hard-to-find special ingredients.
Didn't really*read*this, just looked at the gorgeous photos and read a recipe or two. Currently making Moroccanish soup for lunch-food network is more my recipe speed than Paula.

This is a lovely book. The recipes are comprehensive and the photos and details are lovely.
