A Month in Marrakesh is a celebration of the wonderful tastes and sensational allure of Morocco. Inspired by the diversity of his culturally rich visits to Marrakesh, Andy Harris scoured the maze-like souks for the best flavours, and has produced a wealth of exotic-tasting recipes with fresh ingredients and minimum fuss. You'll be enticed by the delicate sweet pastries such as Khab el ghzal, Muhallabia (milk pudding), the savoury chicken bistilla or one of the many delicious tagines. Impress your guests with modern Moroccan dishes such as roast lamb with orange and honey syrup, spicy squid with harissa yoghurt or orange flower donuts. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Andy leads you through a spectacular pageant of flavour and colours of the Medina, from the pulsating Djemaa el Fna, to timeless winding alleys and tranquil gardens. David Loftus illustrates the recipes with stunning location photography that will have you smelling the fragrant aromas of the spice market with every turn of the page. A Month in Marrakesh is a sumptuous book that captures the soul of this remarkable and unique city.
