While I lived in Tangier, my butcher usually added a chunk of lamb-tail fat to my lamb order for couscous. This, he told me, would enhance the broth's texture and flavor. No other cookbook has come close to capturing the essence, culture and history of this cuisine. Similarly, no food writer has possessed as much knowledge or has written as beautifully about Moroccan cooking as Paula Wolfert.
She devotes separate chapters to breads, soups, savory pastries and those tiny grains of semolina that we know as couscous. The latter chapter is particularly beneficial to anyone like me who made the deranged decision to purchase, drag across the country and then lug back home a couscoussiere , the traditional, two-tiered pot that steams couscous. In that chapter Wolfert takes readers step-by-step through the process of rolling, steaming and raking thousands of semolina grains until they become light, airy and, well, couscous.
Wolfert also shares how to make such classic Moroccan seasonings as chermoula, ras el hanout and preserved lemons. Sort order.

The best book of Moroccan cookery and recipes I have ever read. Wolfert lived in Morocco, then made the recipes based on ingredients available to the standard American, so it translates perfectly for us tableside tourists. The recipes match really well for the food I ate when in Morocco, both restaurant style and the dishes I ate in private homes.

I just realized that I have been cooking from this book for almost 30 years -- and it looks it! Although I have never made the "brain salad" seriously folks, it's in the salad section I think I have made --and enjoyed-- just about every other recipe in this book. One of my first cookbooks, it made me a Wolfert follower. Jun 08, Caro rated it really liked it Shelves: morocco , ill.
