Yotam Ottolenghi is widely credited with popularising Mediterranean cuisine in this country, with his books never far from the top of bestseller lists. On the evidence of this tour of Morocco’s traditional foods it’s not hard to see why. It’s a sensuous feast, with lots of lingering shots of piles of herbs, olives, nuts and lemons in Marrakesh’s medina. By the time you’ve watched him help a Berber woman prepare a simple, slow-cooked dish of seven-vegetable couscous, your mouth will be watering.
An enthusiastic guide, Ottolenghi helpfully adapts labour-intensive methods into easy-to-make home cooking – the barbecued leg of lamb with almonds and orange blossom looks delicious.
Chef Yotam Ottolenghi travels the southern and eastern Mediterranean to explore its cuisine. He begins his journey in Marrakech, Morocco, tasting its wide variety of street food and soaking up the atmosphere of Jemaa el-Fna square, the city's largest communal dining area. Inspired, he returns to his rooftop kitchen and prepares a barbecued leg of lamb with almonds and orange blossom sauce, and herb-infused couscous with grilled cherry tomatoes, before meeting the Berbers, the country's indigenous people, in the Atlas Mountains.
