Medina Kitchen : Home Cooking from North Africa
The best North African food is rooted in the home rather than in restaurants. For her first book, "New Tapas", Fiona Dunlop sought out innovative restaurant and bar cooks; this time she turns her attention to home cooks producing stunning and often innovative food in beautiful houses in Morocco, Tunisia and Libya. As well as classic dishes, these cooks are creating new recipes by fusing traditional Arab and Mediterranean food. Their recipes and stories are accompanied by photographs of their food taken in courtyards strewn with orange trees, kitchens with Arabian tiles and classical dining rooms as well as of the markets they shop at and the Medina they visit. The book features a chapter dedicated to each home cook. Fiona profiles eight cooks in all.
