  • About

B’stilla is an extraordinary Moroccan pie of lemony chicken and herbs encased in filo pastry and dusted with sweet, seductive cinnamon and icing sugar. The original version is rich and heavy with butter, but I have lightened it considerably. The chic stencilled pattern of cinnamon and icing sugar is done through a good old-fashioned paper doily, but don’t tell anyone, and they’ll think you trained in Marrakesh.
