    Colour of Maroc A Celebration of Food and Life (Rob and Sophia Palmer)
    ISBN: 9781743360712
    Publication date: 01/10/2013

    Publication Date: October 2013
    Colour of Maroc is a collection of stories inspired by people, food, and travel experiences seen through the eyes of Rob, the Aussie photographer and Sophia, his French/Moroccan wife.

    For Rob, Colour of Maroc is a sketch of colour and light that captures a cultural awakening in a rich and contrasting land far from the urban beach life of Bondi that he is so familiar with. For Sophia, Colour of Maroc is a journey of rediscovery - experiencing Morocco and her heritage as if for the first time.
    Rob and Sophia's infectious passion for Morocco is a delight to share, as they are guided by Sophia's friends and family through overflowing cities and remote dusty villages, exploring this country of vitality and contrasts. Through their eyes Morocco dazzles with life, brimming with colours, tastes and feelings. Colour of Maroc uses flavour to describe culture. It uses the journey to describe home. It uses colour to describe love.

    Rob Palmer, the Aussie Photographer: Rob's photographic career began while bobbing around in the wild waves of Hawaii's world famous Banzai Pipeline. All of his spare time is still spent chasing waves but these days he's shooting a range of work for lifestyle, food and advertising clients and the stoke hasn't disappeared.
    Sophia Palmer, the Door Opener: Paris, London, Sydney. Sophia's Marketing and Communications career has taken her across the world over the past 12 years, working as an Account Director for big advertising agencies to Marketing Director of some of the top luxury brands. She was born in Morocco where she spent 13 years, and speaks English, French and Arabic.

    ISBN: 9781408827468
    Publication date: 01/09/2012

    Paula Wolfert's name is synonymous with revealing the riches of authentic Mediterranean cooking, especially the cuisine of Morocco. In The Food of Morocco, she brings to bear more than forty years of experience of, love of, and original research on the traditional food of that country. The result is the definitive book on Moroccan cuisine, from tender Berber skillet bread to spiced hariria (the classic soup made with lentils and chickpeas), from chicken with tangy preserved lemon and olives to steamed sweet and savoury breast of lamb stuffed with couscous and dates. The recipes are clear and inviting, and infused with the author's unparalleled knowledge of this delicious food. Essays illuminate the essential elements of Moroccan flavour and emphasise the accessibility of once hard-to-find ingredients such as saffron, argan oil and Moroccan cumin seed. Lavishly photographed in full colour, The Food of Morocco not only showcases Wolfert's tantalising recipes but also evokes Morocco in all its timeless splendour and mystery: its markets with their lush produce, its dazzling textiles and intricate mosaic tiles, its communal ovens and ancient souks, and of course, its people, from Marrakech to Tangier. A labour of love four decades in the making, The Food of Morocco is a once-in-a-lifetime book of uncommon scope and authenticity. It is an essential work for every serious cook, for everyone interested in Moroccan cuisine and for discerning armchair travellers.

    Publication date: 01/10/2015

    Drive down St George's Road in North Fitzroy on the evenings the Soup Bar is open and you'll find a queue stretching out the door and around the corner.

    With its brightly coloured interior, refreshing spoken menu and flavourful Moroccan cuisine, The Soup Bar over the past 16 years has become a Melbourne institution.

    More than just a restaurant, the Moroccan Soup Bar is founded on a philosophy, what Hana describes as 'a vision whose primary objective was not monetary, where everyone who visited, whether a one-time visitor or repeat customer, felt their senses were share experiences, and walk away a little changed as a consequence.'

    Hana, head cook and owner, is releasing a cookbook of the wonderful vegetarian dishes served every night at the restaurant. Her devoted customers have sought the secrets of her recipes, in particular the famed chickpea bake, a dish so delicious it's won awards. Now the public will have the chance to recreate these beautiful, flavoursome recipes in their own homes. There's even a recipe for the restaurant's wall paint, passed down to Hana from her father.

    The book reflects the atmosphere of the Soup Bar - warm, welcoming and colourful. The recipes prove you don't need to include meat in a meal to make it taste delicious.

    Laced with stories of meetings at the Soup Bar, of the plight of women, of Moroccan culture and of hope for a more inclusive future, Hana's book will provide a colourful, spiced oasis in any enthusiastic cook's recipe book collection.

    Publication date: 01/11/2011

    A soulful chef creates his first masterpiece. 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 a Moroccan idea 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.
