Pastilla Recipe

22nd of September, 2011

Typical food and fresh Moroccan on wooden table with woven sack

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

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

20th of September, 2011

Salmon-Pomegranate-Sauce-LevanaCooks

Sweet-and-sour combinations are a great Sephardi favorite, and work beautifully with this salmon with pomegranate sauce. The onions caramelize and contribute a sweet counterpoint to the vinegar. Another quick and delicious dish, just the way I like it—one pan, one step. I hope you think of pomegranate juice more often...

Brussels Sprouts and Zucchini in Tomato Sauce Recipe. Pasta Adaptation

20th of September, 2011

pasta with eggplants zucchinis tomatoes and curry, selective focus

Brussels sprouts, zucchini and tomatoes: Mediterranean flavors at their best! Brussels Sprouts dishes are a frequent Passover and year-round treat at my table. I find brussels sprouts somewhat underrated and underused in our country.  They are much more exciting than they sound, and much less innocent than they look; and their...

Couscous is wonderful and fun, the rock star of Moroccan cuisine. Couscous is native to Morocco, and the word refers to both the grain and the traditional dish made with the grain. It is semolina, or durum (the heart of the wheat kernel), ground to the consistency of coarse cornmeal...

Spicy Lettuce Chick Pea Salad Recipe

saladsm1

One of my favorites! All of you out there always asking how we turn a same old, same old salad into an exciting main course salad: You can glorify it even further by throwing in some leftover diced fish or chicken, or make it dairy, and throw in some crumbled...

My sister Lea’s galettes: Hers the best, even my mother agrees! Galettes were a staple at my house in Morocco, and still are at my mother’s house, where all children clamor for them, calling them Maman Biscuit (they lump all her baked goods into this one generic word: biscuit), submitting...

Ratatouille Recipe. French Style, and Moroccan Style

9th of July, 2011

Ratatouille-Levana-Cooks

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic Ratatouille, taken in a Moroccan direction. Besides, all things Eggplant are a huge favorite in North African and Middle Eastern Cooking. In Arabic we call this variation on Ratatouille “Za’Look”, which must predate Julia’s cooking by...
