A Taste of Morroco

A Taste of Morroco

My foolproof wine tip for all Moroccan fare is: rosé, rosé, rosé! Those from southern France are completely dry with crisp acidity, red fruit flavors and spice (think red-wine complexity with white-wine weight and refreshment) and are a natural match for Moroccan dishes, particularly because the food of both regions have cross-pollinated for centuries. These recipes are no exception, combining Provençal staples like preserved lemons and tomatoes with North African seasonings, such as ras el hanout and harissa. (Do watch for Moroccan wines, though—particularly reds from the Carignan grape—which are slowly trickling into the market.)
