There are few sights as surprising as hearty goats grazing up in thorny argan trees. These were taken recently coming down the Tiz-n-Test pass and into Morocco’s Anti-Atlas. ©Jeff Koehler

While this is far from my favorite hotel in Barcelona, it does have its lovely angles, especially on a sunny morning. Most locals know it only as la vela, “the sail.” (It is the W., though few here could tell you that.) Barcelona, 2012. © Jeff Koehler.

Morocco on CS Monitor’s best cookbooks of 2012

Happy to report that Morocco: A Culinary Journey with Recipes has been selected by the CS Monitor as one of the best cookbooks of 2012, and sits at number 4 on the list. Their justification:

Like Burma, Morocco stands at a culinary crossroads, with influences from many different food traditions. (In this case, West African, Middle Eastern, French, and Spanish are the most pronounced.) Also like Burma, Morocco’s rich culinary offerings have too often been ignored in North America. This excellent book includes recipes that represent the diverse culinary offerings found throughout the country.

In The Daily Meal’s Top 25 Cookbooks of the Year

 

I am happy to share that The Daily Meal has named Morocco: A Culinary Journey with Recipes as one of the best 25 cookbooks of the year.

“Moroccan food is filled with all kinds of mysterious and exotic twists that often make it difficult to master for new home cooks. In his book Morocco, Jeff Koehler de-mystifies the cuisine by explaining the true science behind the many different components of the fascinating food. While it’s not the first Moroccan cookbook we’ve seen, his beautiful photographs and simplified recipes make it a top pick on our list this year.”

The Pleasures of a Great Novel

An ode to the pleasures of a good book and reading long into the night. Or of being eight and reading late — very late — under a mosquito net in a foreign place. (In this case, along the Mekong in northern Thailand.) August 2012. © Jeff Koehler.
