What Mourad Lahlou has developed over the last decade and a half at his Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant is nothing less than a new, modern Moroccan cuisine inspired by memories, steeped in colorful stories, and informed by the tireless exploration of his curious mind. His book is anything but a dutifully "authentic" documentation of Moroccan home cooking. Yes, the great classics are all here-the basteeya, the couscous, the preserved lemons and much more. But Mourad adapts them in stunningly creative ways that take Moroccan tradition to a whole new place. The 100-plus recipes, lavishly illustrated with food and location photography, and terrifically engaging text offer a rare blend of heat, heart and palate. Hardcover. 400 pages.
