Moroccan Cookery Books

Moroccan Cuisine Soulful Cooking

  • mourad 1 soulful Moroccan food

We know how much discovering the food culture of Morocco means to our guests. Exploring Marrakech means getting to grips with the different flavours, spices and recipes and is all part of the fun. We run cooking classes at both of our riads, which are proving very popular indeed. Travelling foodies of course also want to learn how to cook Moroccan dishes back home, so as well as imparting some well-practiced culinary tricks and recipes we also like to recommend a cookbook or two.

There are a lot of Moroccan recipe books out there that explain how to cook everything from tagines to couscous dishes, but one that we really enjoy is by Mourad Lahlou, who, at his Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant, has developed a new, modern Moroccan cuisine. His cookbook ‘Mourad: New Moroccan’ includes the classics – basteeya, couscous, preserved lemons etc but he also adds exciting new twists to traditional recipes. The result is a book of 100-plus recipes and inspiring location photography – a must for all travelling gourmands.

The restaurant is in San Francisco –

A Month in Marrakech

  • a-month-in-marrakesh-cookery book Andy Harris Marrakech

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!
