Moorish, flavours from Mecca to Marrakesh

Moorish, flavours from Mecca to Marrakesh"We are shameless! We want to seduce you; to stimulate your imagination, invigorate your senses and tempt you to try the wonderful flavours of Moorish food." That is the first line of the introduction to Greg and Lucy Malouf’s award-winning food-travel book, Moorish, flavours from Mecca to Marrakesh. At Moorish Blue, we live by that statement as our Chefs serve up the best in Moorish cuisine.

Moorish Cuisine Adventure

If you love the food at Moorish Blue, then you will love Greg and Lucy's book, Moorish. Moorish is a compilation of deliciously mouth-watering recipes from across the Moorish World. Recipes from North Africa, Spain, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East - flavours inspired by the rich variety of Mediterranean produce with a cooking heritage that stretches back across Arabia.

By Moorish, what we mean, loosely, is the cuisine that sprang up as a result of the Arabic occupation of North Africa in the eighth century.
Over the centuries, though, Moorish food has absorbed not just the exoticrange of spices, herbs, fruit and vegetables introduced by the Arabs, but also the later influences of the Ottoman Empire and new and different ingredients from the New World.
This is the culinary mix that we explore in this book: a feast of dishes from Mecca to Marrakech.
