Tagines form the basis of traditional Moroccan cooking. These hearty casseroles are cooked and often served in an elegant, specially-designed cooking vessel, the tagine. In this collection of recipes you will find some of the best-loved classics. A chapter on Traditional Lamb Tagines includes the sumptuous Lamb Tagine with Dates, Almonds, and Pistachios. Also included are less traditional but equally delicious recipes for Beef, Kefta, and Sausage Tagines. Try a Beef Tagine with Sweet Potatoes, Peas, and Ginger; or a Chorizo Tagine with Lentils and Fenugreek, Lighter recipes for Chicken and Duck Tagines include a tangy Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemon, Green Olives, and Thyme. Ideas for Fish and Seafood dishes include a Creamy Shellfish Tagine with Fennel and Spicy Harissa. Vegetable Tagines make satisfying and economical meals. Try a Tagine of Artichokes, Potatoes, Peas, and Saffron. A chapter devoted to Couscous Dishes provides an essential recipe for Plain, Buttery Couscous, as well as ideas for couscous-based dishes, such as Green Couscous with a Spring Broth; and Couscous Tfaia with Beef. Finally, Salads and Vegetable Side Dishes are often served alongside tagines to balance the flavors. Recipes to try include Preserved Lemon and Tomato Salad with Capers; and Honey-glazed Pumpkin with Spices.

. Featuring over 50 foolproof recipes, this book is the perfect introduction to the fabulous cuisine fo Morocco.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful cookbook with great recipes March 17 2011
Length: 3:33 Mins
I received a tagine for Christmas and decided to buy Tagines & Couscous by Ghillie Basan as my first Moroccan cookbook. I was so impressed with the photography and the quality of the recipes that I decided to make a video review showing not only the book but also several of the dishes that I made using this excellent, authentic cookbook. I hope that you find it helpful.

Beautiful pictures! Recipes easy to follow (with or without a tagine). Recipes have excellent explanations for those of us in North America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Riley's video review is spot on Jan. 20 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received a tagine for Christmas last year (2012) from my brother and used this book to make my second dish: the butternut squash tagine with almonds and sultanas. It turned out looking just like photo. I modified it slightly, adding black-mustard seed to the olive oil at the beginning to give it an additionally nutty flavour.

I also tried it with a spice melange from a seller in BC, listed here in Amazon: Sultana Spice World Blends. They also have a Ras el Hanout and a "Moroccan Magic" blend. These were so fragrant that when they arrived in a bubble-wrap package, we could smell them through it. Delicious! I used the "Hot Hot Maroc" with additional roasted cumin and grated ginger too. Today is -30C outside and this was a perfect, toasty, cozy dish for dinner.
