There is an excellent recipe for plain couscous and a wonderful country
salad at the back of the book. My favourite tagines are the slightly sweet ones with dates, prunes, apricots and the different types of nuts that are added toward the end of the cooking time. There is also a wonderful Lamb, Zuchinni and tomato tagine that has both dried mint and
fresh mint added to it. There is also a really nice minced beef tagine
with wonderfully tasting preserved lemons which are very easy to make yourself.
If per change the tagine is more meat than vegetable then I make the
roasted pumpkin couscous from Julie Le Clercs 'Made in Morocco'.
A wonderful addition to the 'Tagines' is the book "Modern Moroccan" also
by Ghillie Basan which has a wonderful broad bean salad and carrot salad in it.
I have not used a cook book as much I have used 'Tagine'
This is definately a keeper on the cookbook shelf.
If you own a general Moroccan cookbook (I have and like Cooking at the Kasbah, plus I've read a few others) you'll certainly find a few tagine recipes, but most of the overview cookbooks stick with a few standards. (Unfortunately for me, that usually means lamb and/or olives, neither of which we eat.) With 25 tagine recipes in this collection, obviously there is a wider range, and not all of them will make you point and say, "Oh, I need to go to the middle-east market to make that!"
For example, the recipe I made so far -- spicy chicken tagine with apricots, rosemary and ginger -- uses ingredients you can find at your local grocery store. It was also breathlessly easy to throw together for a midweek supper: saute onion, rosemary, ginger, chiles; throw in a cinnamon stick; brown the chicken thighs; add a few more items (such as dried apricots and a can of tomatoes) and simmer for 40 minutes. Serve with couscous. I won't need to tell you to smack your lips and say, "Yum!Read more ›
This book may not be a 400-page tome of every single Moroccan delicacy, but the recipes are stunning. Also, it gave me enough inspiration to experiment with different ingredients.
I found the list of references to be extremely helpful. And I thought I knew practically all the good foodie sites on the Internet.
What I also liked is that I didn't have to make or purchase a ton of condiments before I had a chance to play with the recipes. However, it is essential to make the preserved lemons. I found that the Meyer lemon was the best. (However, I had to find a huge jar just to hold these large fruits!)
Yummy!! Definitely great comfort food during an Alaskan winter. And don't forget the couscous!
