Foodies and book-lovers rejoice! Lahlou's new book is the perfect title for you holiday gift list. This cookbook reads like a memoir, with an engaging introduction by the self-taught chef, several special sections to help the home cook get started, and more than 100 recipes that are perfectly presented, all interspersed with beautiful food and location photographs. You'll want to read this cookbook from start to finish, but save time for cooking -- the food is delicious! -- Roni K. Devlin, Literary Life Bookstore & More, Inc., Grand Rapids, MI
This book is anything but a dutifully authentic documentation of Moroccan home cooking. The great classics are all here--the basteeya, the couscous, the preserved lemons, and much more. But Lahlou adapts them in stunningly creative ways that take a Moroccan idea to a whole new place. 400 pp. 25,000 print.
