Book Review: Street Cafe Morocco
The colours used in this book are what first attracted me to pick it up. The photography by Jeremy Hopley is very captivating.
The book covers recipes for street food in Morocco. So the foods themselves are easy to prepare. Most recipes have less than 6 ingredients, so its easy to throw a dish together with ingredients in your grocery cupboard or refrigerator.
Primarily targetted at a British audience, I find myself being more generous with the chilli powder than recommended in the book. But its been great at getting me to use some of the spice mixes I picked up on a recent trip to Morocco.
Do not let that fact scare you. A majority of the recipes can be prepared without searching for exotic ingredients.
