Book Description

May 1 2005 Cooking
The practical and inspirational meet in this new and lavishly produced COOKING series from Murdoch Books. The COOKING series combines hard-working content, the hallmark of an internationally successful Murdoch food series (such as the widely acclaimed Essentials and The Food of series), with contemporary recipes and food styling to fire the imagination of all cooks. With three distinct strands - ingredients, regional cuisines and cooking styles - the COOKING series has the potential to cover a diverse range of books. From the simple pleasure of cooking the basics to the challenge of expanding your repertoire through the in-depth exploration of a versatile ingredient or an exotic regional cuisine, this series is an essential addition to any kitchen. Each title in this extensive series will feature step-by-step recipes and photographs. Additional information on unusual or misunderstood ingredients, cooking methods or serving suggestions will feature throughout the books. Photographs of the recipes will combine classical styling with a contemporary twist, ensuring an enduring look.

I ordered this book after flipping through it at the library and seeing the picture of the semolina pancakes. I was a little worried that it would be a very western take on Moroccan cooking, but instead I have been thoroughly impressed by the useability of the cookbook and the quality of the food I have produced using it. I have made 5 of the recipes so far, and all of them have turned out somewhere between really well and droolifically delicious.

The book has sections that cover appetizers, simple dishes, "dishes from the palace," and sweets, pastries, and drinks. I have mainly cooked from the simple dishes section, with tremendous success. I am still using the hot, spicy, garlicky harissa spice blend I made up - I'm smearing it on everything, it is such a tasty addition to marinades and salad dressings. Couscous with chicken and vegetables turned out amazingly well, it's one of the most delicious things I've ever made - despite the plain title, it was a delight to the senses, and tasted amazingly healthy. I made the semolina pancakes today and they are yummy.

"Moroccan Cooking" has a good recipe- and ingredient-based index. The recipe directions are easy to follow and fairly complete. They use a similar format to other Murdoch Books cookbooks, give clear explanations about unusual ingredients and suggest substitutes, and have measurements in both weight and volume, so the book can be used equally well by North American and European or Australian cooks. If I have one caveat, it is that the ingredients list does not usually include water, so you don't find out how much water you need until reading through the directions. Some people find this irritating (my boyfriend).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Moroccan Food Cook Book I've Found Aug. 14 2013

Everything in the recipes is lean, yet very very tasty. I'm made nearly every recipe in the book, and love them all. I've given this to several people who also have reported back that they love it. The Moroccan Chicken has been a hit at many parties and I've served the Honey & Dates with Lamb dish at dinners and people rave about it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious recipes Sept. 22 2012
By Floral Symphony - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, it's good. The recipes I have tried have been delicious and without too much chi chi, as a French reviewer would say.
The publication is of good quality with a photo for each recipe.
Personally I have a penchant for preserving the simple little tricks and dishes that go by the wayside in glossy recipe books that jump off the shelf at you. Simple vegetable preparations are the first to lose out with this trend,
Luckily the Murdoch book includes some pages such as "Three ways with carrots" and "Three ways with Quinces" and "Three ways with prunes" that helps with these tricks.
I'd recommend this book in combination with Robert Carrier's "Taste of Morocco" This latter book gives a better insight into the nature of a traditional Moroccan meal and how to construct it.

Unfortunately I have have not yet found a Moroccan cookbook that really publishes a complete gamut of basic home cooking, not forgetting the vegetables. I expect there is one in Moroccan. Perhaps Phaedon publishers can take on this task.
