Sephardi food at its best and most fragrant. Straight from the Moroccan kitchen of my childhood. Ridiculously simple ingredients and hardly any labor. I have included several variations to make it a full one-pot dish, but you can choose to go without and make this a wonderful all-vegetable main course...

We all observe a sort of frenzy that sets in right before (and right after) a holiday that is marked by some food restrictions. Like hoarding in prevision of a period of austerity. Let’s start with the most egregious example: Pessach. I recently attended a cook-off event for a famous...

We Moroccans love squash in every way shape of form, and goodness knows it comes in countless shapes and sizes. They turn up in many Moroccan dishes (Couscous on top of the list). Their spicy sweetness is equally at home in savory dishes (I love Pumpkin Corn Pudding) and in...

This soup is overlaid with Moroccan flavors, and smells as heavenly as it tastes. For many years, my classroom was in Lincoln Square Synagogue. The teacher himself later told me that he found teaching exquisite torture on Monday nights. I could have told them what I had known all along:...

The appeal of Moroccan food is universal. The aromas and flavors of the dishes do their magic every bit as much as the simplicity of their preparation. There’s just one more secret: What we call somewhat dismissively “side dishes” and which gets shuffled around on our dinner plate simply doesn’t...

Pastilla is one of the world’s great dishes, and it takes just one delightful bite to understand why. It epitomizes Moroccan cuisine, spicy and sweet, delicate and intriguing. More labored than the dishes I usually share, but then this is a very special treat. I admit I toast the almonds...
