Moroccan food is very popular in the West and very well documented. Pictures of the traditional souks, spice shops and Marrakesh come to mind.

The food was influenced by the Arab, French and Spanish cuisine and it is  generally regarded as one of the best world cuisines.

The recipe below is an adaption from a book called The Food of Morocco.
