really liked it
bookshelves: culinary
Recommended for: those interested in exotic cuisines
Read in July, 2008

Like the book The Moroccan Cookbook: 70 Delicious Easy-to-make Dishes from an Exotic Cuisine, "Cooking Moroccan contains wonderful recipes each accompanied by beautiful color photographs; each one whets the appetite.

I found the author's discussion of eating traditions, such as the washing of the hands with rose water and the proper method of eating with ones fingers to be insightful and will surely add to the experience of preparing and serving a proper Moroccan meal for family and friends.

The author also discusses Mint Tea. This is a staple of Moroccan hospitality and filters down from something you sip with friends and visitors to a beverage being served while bartering in the market place.

Cons:
1) No advice for cooking in a tagine over a charcoal brazier
2) No recipes for traditional doughs, again phyllo is used as a substitute instead of allowing the reader to choose how they wish to proceed; old school or substitution.
