Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Moroccan Fish Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a flavorful, spicy soup that happens to be Moroccan but will remind you of fish soups found from Spain to Russia. It is a classic! Serves 4 as a main dish, 6 as an appetizer.

Harira Soup

Harira Soup by John Spottiswood

This is the traditional soup served at sunset to break the daily fast observed during the 30 days of Ramadan. Recipes vary from family to family throughout Morocco and the rest of North Africa. I'm particularly fond of this version. If you have not had this before, you MUST try it. It is truly delicious!

PERI/PERI OIL by Peter Brown

In South Africa we tend to use a lot of Peri/Peri oil, I believe it originates from the old African Portuguese Colonies of Mozambique and Angola. It is simple to make and always handy to have in your food cupboard

Moroccan Fish Stew Recipe

Moroccan Fish Stew Recipe by John Spottiswood

We often serve a hearty fish soup or stew on Christmas Eve, prior to our traditional roast for Christmas Dinner. Normally, it's Cioppino or Clam Chowder, but this year I decided to try something different. This stew had big time flavor, and was roundly regarded as being as good as or better than our Cioppino. If you've never had a…

Moroccan Split Pea Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious and beautiful recipe I adapted from one in Paula Wolfert's beautiful book "the food of morocco". The split pea soup has wonderful Moroccan flavors, and it gets a beautiful touch when you drizzle homemade pepper oil on top.

Moroccan Beet Salad

Moroccan Beet Salad by John Spottiswood

This is a classic beet salad. If you like beets, you're going to really enjoy this. My personal preference is to boil the beets as little as possible That way they still have a crunch to them but aren't as hard as raw beets. I think raw beets are perfectly delicious, and I don't like them soft, so I boil them just enough to soften…
