Description: The ingredients of Moroccan cuisine are simple, but they are brought together in a way that is unexpected and exotic to the Western palate. In Cooking at the Kasbah, Kitty Morse reveals the secrets of this venerable cooking tradition. From savory tagine of lamb, zucchini, and potatoes to the delicately sweet and flaky shredded chicken, ground almonds, and cinnamon pastry called b'stila, these are the recipes that have been passed from mother to daughter for centuries, but seldom written down.
The author, who grew up in Casablanca, illuminates the culinary customs of her native land and offers ways to adapt traditional recipes for today's faster-paced lifestyle. She explains the rituals of the Moroccan table, describes the basic techniques, ingredients, and equipment you'll need, and takes you from appetizer through dessert, including soups, savory pastries, breads, tagines and grilled meats, beverages, and of course, couscous, Morocco's national dish. Her own photographs of Morocco as well as mouthwatering portraits of the food by Laurie Smith complete this fascinating insider's look at an intriguing cuisine.
