Have you always wanted to make Moroccan food but didn’t know where to start? Our Moroccan cuisine box makes it super easy to cook authentic dishes straight from your kitchen! We’ve put together all the spices you’ll need to create a delicious three-course meal for four people. We believe cooking should be fun and fuss-free, so we’ve perfectly measured each spice into small pots so that you don’t have to worry about getting the measurements right.
Moroccan food is a melting pot of many different cultures and nations, most notably the Berbers, the Arabs, the Moors, the Ottomans and the French. Many mouth watering dishes have been created as a result of all these different influences. One of the most famous dishes is tagine. Named after the earthenware pot it’s cooked in, a tagine is a stew which is slow cooked and can include meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit and spices. In this box, we’ve included spices for a chicken tagine with apricots, ginger and Ras-el-Hanout, a classic spice mixture used in Moroccan cuisine. Containing no less than 15 herbs and spices, the spice mix combines the warm flavours of cinnamon, cloves, mace and nutmeg with the zesty flavours of cardamom, coriander and allspice. It’s translated from Arabic as ‘head of the shop’, which implies that it’s the very best of the shop’s spices. For an authentic Moroccan dining experience, you can try and eat the tagine in the traditional way - directly from the pot using pieces of bread to scoop the stew up!
Couscous is a staple in Moroccan homes. Originally a Berber dish, it’s a perfectly balanced and flavoursome dish that you can’t help having more helpings of. There are many different types of couscous, and can be made with meat or vegetables. In this box, we’ve provided spices for couscous with roasted fennel butter. Fennel seeds give the soft and fluffy couscous a warm, sweet aroma with hints of a licorice-like flavour.
Say goodbye to boring salads with this recipe for orange and date salad with preserved lemon and pomegranate molasses. It’s an explosion of flavours, with sweet, minty, tangy and spicy all coming together nicely. This makes a delicious side dish to accompany your tagine and couscous.
In each Moroccan cuisine box, we’ve included a shopping list and cooking method so that all you need to do is grab the ingredients. We’ve also added a postcard and specially curated music playlist - just for a little fun. We believe that food should be an experience involving all the five senses, so enjoy some lively Moroccan music with your Moroccan food!
