A magnificent sweet and spicy lamb recipe. You can increase cayenne and other spices to suit individual tastes. Serve in warm pitta with mixed greens (try using some strongly flavoured ones) and fresh herbs. Drizzle with a lemon and herb yoghurt sauce or a tzatziki.

Moroccan pancakes served with honey-butter sauce. Best during Ramadan for breaking the fast or pre-dawn, but certainly great anytime.

Cooking fish – traditionally by frying – and then submerging it in a ‘souse’ is a very tasty way to prepare it, and was once a means of preserving. Here sardines are grilled and marinated, then served on a Moroccan-spiced couscous, chickpea and pepper salad. It is a perfect prepare-ahead dish for summer entertaining.
