Moroccan food is diverse, reflecting the influence of many cultures over the centuries, including Berber, Moorish, Arab and French. The heady spices along with the use of fresh fruits and vegetables makes these recipes sing. These recipes are easy to make and will benefit from being prepared ahead. We will make such dishes as:
Fresh Tomato and Caper Salad
Carrot Salad with Orange and Dates
Spiced Chick Pea and Spinach B’stilla
Lamb Tagine with Preserved Lemons and Olives
Moroccan Olive Oil Cake
The Dinner Tonight series is for beginning-to-intermediate level cooks who want to learn recipes that they can recreate at home. Students will prepare both simple weeknight recipes, and also dishes that can be made ahead of time for busy weeks. Each class will focus on basic knife skills and other techniques that make cooking easier and more pleasurable.
All classes will run from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Rocket Restaurant Supply on Ashby Ave. in Berkeley and include lunch. Feel free to bring wine or beer to share with the meal. Each class is $130, or $470 if you sign up for the entire series of four.
