Fresh, fragrant, fruity, spicy, smoky, sweet, sour, and sharp. Discover how to cook these vibrant southern Mediterranean flavours at home with 100 wonderful recipes from Ben Tish.
The bold spices and sun-soaked exotic tastes of North Africa and the Arabic world collided with the characterful food of the Mediterranean when the Moors invaded. It was this glorious fusion of flavours that first seduced British chef, writer and restaurateur, Ben Tish, and sent his cooking on a new course.
Moorish is a collection of authentic recipes inspired by Ben's passion for the region, along with a few of his own twists and interpretations. He has divided the book into chapters based around the way he likes to cook at home – from quick and refreshing light bites and his notorious barbecue food to lazy brunches and slow-cooked dishes that fill the house with evocative scents of the Mediterranean.
About the Author
Ben's love of food started at an early age in the seaside town of Skegness. Very busy parents meant that Ben spent a lot of time with his Jewish grandmother, a feeder if ever there was one and a brilliant home cook. This is Ben's third cookbook, having previously written Salt Yard Food and Wine (2012) and Grill, Smoke, BBQ (2016). He regularly appears on TV including shows such as Saturday Kitchen, Masterchef and Sunday Brunch. Ben lives in East London with his wife Nykeeta and his French bulldog Piglet.
