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...

Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse, the perennial favorite, wears several hats, all quite becoming. My version omits the verboten shellfish, and has very pleasing Moroccan overtones (this Moroccan can’t help it!)
