Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style by John Spottiswood

These prawns are absolutely fantastic. Every time I make them I marvel at the density and depth of the flavors. I typically leave the Cayenne pepper out of about half of them if I'm cooking for the whole family. I often serve these in combination with a Moroccan chicken, fish, or lamb dish, but they work fine on their own too.

If you've never had a…

It's a combination of fava beans, garlic, parsley/coriander, and cumin in a rich fresh tomato sauce with a touch of lemon. Absolutely…

This was an outstanding dish that we served last night with a lamb tagine. It's fairly easy to put together, and will fill your house with wonderful smells! The sweetness is a nice accompaniment to a spicier dish.

African Spinach ( Muriwo )

African Spinach ( Muriwo ) by Grant Loney

Virtually every township house in Zimbabwe has a small vegetable patch in the yard on which one of a variety of muriwo is grown. Virtually every township street corner has a vendor selling tomatoes and bundles of the vegetable. Even the poorest family in the worst grip of any hardship has this hardy kale to fall back on. A plate of…

OK, before you say it, I know that we are supposed to be a focused on flavors of the Rocky Mountains, so how does Morocco fit in? Well even in Vail, Colorado we crave the delights of exotic cuisines from around the world. In addition, I discovered my new favorite shop in Denver, Savory Spice Shop on Platte.

Ham and Asparagus Spaghetti

Ham and Asparagus Spaghetti by Peter Brown

use a combination of fresh asparagus, well-cured deli ham and lots of fresh herbs such as dill, chives and basil to give this pasta dish a tasty array of flavours. It also makes a very pretty, colourful arrangement on the plate. It’s important to source good quality, freshly made pasta and if you can make your own pasta, even better.
