The aromatic and subtle flavours of cooking from Morocco...
Inspired by the romantic Moroccan cities of Marrakech and Casablanca, this Valentine’s meal takes your taste buds on a tour of the colourful cuisine of Morocco. The flavours there are a fine balance of sweetness and fragrant spices - including allspice, cassia and cardamon - which produces a refined cuisine that’s famous the world over. To begin we’ve got vegetable pastries known as briouats served with a spicy rose petal harissa.
Next chermoula grilled lamb chops with saffron couscous and a spring vegetable tagine. Finally, to refresh the palate an orange salad topped with rose petals and some filo and almond biscuits on the side.
