Book Description

Oct. 27 2011
A soulful chef creates his first masterpiece

What Mourad Lahlou has developed over the last decade and a half at his Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant is nothing less than a new, modern Moroccan cuisine, inspired by memories, steeped in colorful stories, and informed by the tireless exploration of his curious mind. His book is anything but a dutifully “authentic” documentation of Moroccan home cooking. Yes, the great classics are all here—the basteeya, the couscous, the preserved lemons, and much more. But Mourad adapts them in stunningly creative ways that take a Moroccan idea to a whole new place. The 100-plus recipes, lavishly illustrated with food and location photography, and terrifically engaging text offer a rare blend of heat, heart, and palate.

About the Author

Arriving in California from Marrakesh in 1985 to go to college, a homesick young Mourad Lahlou began to channel memories of watching his mother and aunts as they prepared traditional Moroccan dishes at home. He started to cook for himself, then for friends, and then for friends of friends. He completed a master’s degree in macroeconomics, but the lure of the kitchen pulled him from his doctorate, and he opened his first restaurant, in San Rafael, California, in 1997. He then opened the decidedly modern Aziza, named after his mother, in San Francisco in 2001, to international acclaim. In 2009, he won Iron Chef America by the largest margin in the history of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book! Sept. 9 2013
By Linda
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading his story, the illustrations and the photos. Even if you don't cook, but like Moroccan influence, it's a great book. As for using it as a cookbook, I am not the most patient or great cook. I have not cooked from it yet. I find it's a book to be read first. I will definitely use it soon. He gives you info on where to get the ingredients that might be hard to find

This cookbook is beautifully written and photographed. The recipes look wonderful, I am disappointed that I can't find many of the spices in my rural area to try most recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't say enough good things about this book.... March 29 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is so much more than a cookbook, an anthology of life, love, passion, history and superb storytelling through
food as a medium. Couldn't stop reading it... will make a trip to San Francisco to taste his cooking first hand. Thank you for such a superb celebration of your work and art.
