Taste of Morocco

by Robert Carrier


Robert Carrier loved Morocco and spent several months each year in Marrakesh. His enthusiasm for the country, its food, and its people runs through Taste of Morocco. A pioneering volume at the time, the book remains one of the best guides to the warmly-spiced cuisine of this North African country. It features soups such as harira, other local specialties including kefta and various types of tagine, and two different recipes for harissa, the addictive Moroccan red chilli paste.

Taste of Morocco is the third title by the late Robert Carrier to be added to ckbk. Carrier played a pioneering role in enthusiastically advocating good food to audiences in Britain and America in the 60s, 70s and 80s, and his books sold in their millions. He spent several months each year in Marrakesh, and Morocco held a special place in his heart.

Dear old Robert Carrier, now forgotten and consigned to the culinary dustbin of history. This is my favourite Carrier work, lavishly illustrated; charming and enthusiastic.
