A soulful chef creates his first masterpiece
What Mourad Lahlou has developed over the last decade and a
half at his Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant is
nothing less than a new, modern Moroccan cuisine, inspired
by memories, steeped in colorful stories, and informed by
the tireless exploration of his curious mind. His book is
anything but a dutifully “authentic” documentation of
Moroccan home cooking. Yes, the great classics are all
here—the basteeya, the couscous, the preserved lemons, and
much more. But Mourad adapts them in stunningly creative
ways that take a Moroccan idea to a whole new place. The
100-plus recipes, lavishly illustrated with food and
location photography, and terrifically engaging text offer a
rare blend of heat, heart, and palate.
