Ras el Hanout

Ras el Hanout Recipe
Ras el hanout means "head of the shop" in Arabic, referring to the best spice mixture that the shop has to offer. There is not set combination of spices, and some contain more than 50 individual flavors! This homemade Ras el Hanout blend incorporates many spices found in American pantries and adds Moroccan flair to a number of dishes.

Chicken Tagine with Pine-nut Couscous Recipe
In Morocco, tagine refers to a slow-simmered, usually inexpensive cut of meat, such as lamb shoulder or neck. The meat is slow-cooked until it is literally falling off the bone, similar to an American pot roast. This tagine features chicken thighs, seasonings, and fruit simmered to perfection and poured over a bed of homemade pine-nut couscous.
