My first experience of Moroccan food came when I was working as a travel agent and Morocco was a new and exciting destination. We went to a reception hosted by the tourist board filled with incredible, previously unknown food like pigeon pastilla, brik (also beloved in Tunisia), tagines full of spice and fruit and piles of fluffy couscous. This book takes you on a journey through the spice sellers of the souks and gives you an insight into the true flavours of Marrakesh. The photography is by David Loftus so that should give you an idea of how mouthwatering the images are.

By the time you read this, I'll be in France and stocking up on my Moroccan herbs and spices so I can cook some of these incredible dishes. I have my eye on the Chicken Mefenned with Parsley Omelettes, the Mechoui Lamb with Crushed Roast Potatoes and Tomatoes and that stunning Pomegranate Jelly.
