  • Hardback
  • £20.00

100 modern and traditional recipes inspired by Moroccan cuisine.

Simple & inviting recipes that blend traditional Moroccan cuisine with a fresh, contemporary approach.

OBSERVER RISING STAR IN FOOD 2018

Morocco is one of the top destinations in the world. This beautiful North African country lies on the border of Europe and the rest of the Arab world, drawing people in with its colourful souks, vibrant landscapes, cheerful hospitality and, most importantly, the food.

Casablanca is the exciting debut from Moroccan chef Nargisse Benkabbou. This book features recipes for simple and satisfying dishes such as Artichoke, baby potato & preserved lemon tagine, Sticky ras el hanout & peach short ribs and Buttermilk chicken kebabs. Also featured are tasty western classics with a unique Moroccan twist: try your hand at Orange blossom, beetroot & goats' cheese galette, Roasted almond & rainbow couscous stuffed poussin and Moroccan mint tea infused chocolate pots.

Nargisse breathes new life into Moroccan cuisine, blending that authentic Moroccan spirit and the contemporary to create accessible recipes for the everyday.

Biographical Notes

Nargisse Benkabbou was raised in Brussels, where she grew up in a strongly food-oriented family that continually nurtured her connection with her roots and country of origin, Morocco.

After living in Brussels and Paris, Nargisse moved to London a few years ago to pursue her education in Politics only to realize that her love for cooking and food was a real passion. After training at Leiths School of Food and Wine, she started blogging and sharing her Moroccan recipes "with a twist". In addition to recipes that run the gamut from starters to desserts, Nargisse also shares her own "food for thought", a personal commentary section of her site dedicated to exploring Moroccan ingredients and experimenting with new cooking techniques.

Her work currently involves recipe development, food photography, cooking classes and working as a guest chef. Each recipe that Nargisse produces is a celebration of her heritage and a care for simplicity and modernity. While she has a strong grasp of traditional Moroccan cuisine, her ultimate goal is to inspire and bring "a breath of fresh air" to Moroccan food.

Levant

Rawia Bishara, Jumana Bishara, Rawia Bishara
Authors:
Rawia Bishara, Jumana Bishara, Rawia Bishara

`Cookery to me is about history and connection, but to remain vibrant, a cuisine must also evolve.' Thus author Rawia Bishara explains her approach in this book. She believes one of the greatest assets of Middle Eastern cuisine is its inherent fluidity, its remarkable capacity to adapt and transform over time. In Levant, she offers more than 100 recipes that represent a new modern style. These are the very best of the dishes she has developed over the last twenty years in her New York City restaurant for the contemporary palate. Relying on a traditional pantry (including olive oil, tahini, za'atar, sumac), she updates classic flavour profiles to dazzling effect. The Mediterranean diet has always been a healthy one, with so many of what we now call `superfoods' at its base. But here Rawia takes it a step further by focusing on dishes that are naturally vegetarian or vegan and gluten-free, as well as meat dishes where vegetables take the leading role. These recipes represent the way more and more people eat and cook today. Among them are Cauliflower `Steak' with Pomegranate Molasses, Roasted Beetroot Hummus, Jerusalem Artichoke and Beef Stew, Peppers with Walnut Stuffing and Freekeh and Butternut Squash Salad. Levant explores the sensational cross-cultural possibilities of culinary exchange; it sets the path for the future of Middle Eastern cooking. www.tanoreen.com @tanoreen

How to eat a peach

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

'This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.' - Nigella LawsonWhen Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons.How to Eat a Peach contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.
