"The cuisine of North Africa is voluptuous, a sensual feast. It presents its abundance in a carnival of colours, perfumes and flavours. In our land, there are as many couscous as villages, as many tagines as vegetable gardens, as many desserts as orchards and as many recipes, jealously guarded, as families." - Mourad Mazouz Restaurateur Mourad Mazouz ('Momo') has drawn his Algerian background and his extensive knowledge of North African food and culture to create this prize-winning cookbook, which features 90 authentic recipes from Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. Alongside the inspiring range of home-grown recipes, Jean Cazals's stunning photography evokes the romance and mystery of the region - it's colours, images, traditions and rituals - whilst multiple-award-winning journalist, Janine di Giovanni, contributes prose portraits of the land, the people, their customs and their legendary hospitality.
