Our mouths are already watering in anticipation of this meet-and-greet with Mourad Lahlou, Iron Chef winner and owner and head chef at Aziza. We'll be celebrating the release of his cookbook, Mourad, with some food and drink samples and a book signing at the store on Saturday, November 19th at 1 PM.
Mourad is anything but a dutifully authentic documentation of Moroccan home cooking. While the recipes therein include the great Moroccan classics--the basteeya, the couscous, the preserved lemons, and much more -- Lahlou adapts them in creative ways that take a Moroccan idea to a whole new place.
So come by on Saturday, November 19th at 1PM to taste some of the food from what critics call "by far the best Moroccan restaurant in the city", and to meet and mingle with the chef and to get your cookbooks signed. We'll see you there!
