Call him an accidental chef, Mourad Lahlou started cooking while he was a graduate student in San Francisco.
He cooked more from memory of the flavors and colors of dishes he grew up with in his native Morocco than recipes. These humble beginnings led to Aziza, his popular Bay Area restaurant.
Mourad Lahlou first cookbook Mourad: New Moroccan (Artisan Books, Fall 2011) is filled with love and soul satisfying recipes.
We learn about basic spices, the dance of the seven salads, lamb bacon, burnt honey ice cream and a lot more.
All this served with a dollup of family memories.
We have 1 copy of Mourad: New Moroccan for the taking.
