The Momo Cookbook: A Gastronomic Journey Through North Africa

by Mourad Mazouz (Author), Jean Cazals (Photographer)


No other ethnic cuisine is causing more excitement in Europe's culinary capitals than North African cuisine and no other North African restaurant is more celebrated than Momo. THE MOMO COOKBOOK contains eighty-eight authentic North African recipes which allow the reader to make these spicy and aromatic dishes at home. Each chapter concentrates on the food of a particular region - Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia - and text from the award-winning author Janine di Giovanni relates the recipes to the rich history and culture of these remarkable regions. Some of the delicious dishes which can be recreated include lamb ribs with coriander crust and tagine mqualli of beef and fennel. salads include the hot orange and black olive salad and couscous salad in tabbouleh style and there are many, many more recipes for soups, fish, side dishes, couscous, tagines, briouats and desserts. There are also 'modern' dishes inspired by authentic North African cooking and recently created in the restaurant such as croustillant of skate with cucumber and coriander and sea bass fillet with tabbouleh and citrus juice. THE MOMO COOKBOOK provides a wonderful insight into an unusual and exotic cuisine, and into a rich, evocative culture.
