Moroccan food is complex and layered, influenced by centuries of interactions and exchanges with other cultures and nations; a mix of Berber, Arabic, Andalusian, and Mediterranean cuisines melded with European and sub-Saharan influences.
One of the quintessential Moroccan dishes is the tagine, a family of fragrant spiced stews traditionally prepared in the unique earthenware cooking vessel of the same name. For Hajar Jamaleddine, the spices and aromas of a classic tagine is a connection to her family and culture that she is excited to share everywhere she travels.
A richly flavoured Moroccan mezze (appetizer/side dish) made from a base of roasted eggplants and tomatoes, seasoned with garlic, cilantro, olives, preserved lemon, and spices.
Chicken Tagine with Mushrooms
There are as many kinds of tagine as there are Moroccan cooks – each region, each family, each cook contributing their own unique combination of ingredients and flavours. Exquisite Moroccan saffron and turmeric give this chicken tagine a rich fragrance and beautiful golden color. Mushrooms add an earthy richness, tomatoes sweetness and acidity, mixing with the garlic, cumin, paprika, and a touch of heat into a whole that is more than the sum of its parts.
Also available #vegetarian: zucchini, carrots and potato tagine in a spiced tomato, garlic and olive broth.
Served with roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, olive oil and butter — a hint of French influence that has become part of Morocco’s history and culture.
A distinct version of the popular Middle Eastern semolina cake infused with aroma of oranges.
