For 44 years, Morocco was a protectorate of France. This link between the two countries created a pathway for Moroccan cuisine to be introduced and popularized in France. The word tagine refers to the cookware used to make the stew, which is made of either ceramic or, more traditionally, unglazed clay. The varieties of tagines are endless and are often vegetarian with a deep aromatic broth to accompany the couscous. In this class we will celebrate the traditional flavors of a chicken tagine scented with preserved lemons and olives, along with a vegetable tagine scented with a tomato & cumin infused broth served with couscous and harissa! Join Zoe McLaughlin for an evening in the kitchen, where she will guide you through her recipes, inspired by her time cooking and living in Paris.
