March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This year, we’re cooking from around the world, trying to tie in a holiday from that region to our cooking!
Today we’re celebrating Moroccan Independence Day (March 2nd)! We’ll be cooking from Mourad : new Moroccan by Mourad Lahlou ; with Susie Heller, Steve Siegelman, and Amy Vogler ; photographs by Deborah Jones.
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.
We’ll have copies in the library or you can reserve one HERE
