Chef and restaurateur Hassan M'souli brings you a sensation from his Moroccan kitchen. A unique mix of sweet, salty, earthy spice flavours - Moroccan cooking is distinguished by rich taste. As well as the famous tanginess - from Seafood Breakfast Tangine to Quail and Goats Cheese with Raisins - Hassan includes his recipes for bread, bruschetta and a range of couscous dishes including Vine Leaf and Couscous Wrapped Salmon Filo. Recipes using the exotic spices of zaatar, ginger, dukkah, ras el hanout and cumin are included, but there are also recipes with a modern twist - salads using olives and artichokes and of course the sensational pomegranates. For dessert, try Date and Orange Blossom Shots, Roast Spices Quinces, Lemongrass Saffron and Rose Creme Brulee. Serve with a tray of mint tea and you will be transported to Morocco, the place where the sun sets.
