Cooking local food with spices in the Middle East

johngs Apr 6, 2010 03:24 AM

I am writing a cook book on spices and will be visiting The Lebanon, Turkey, Syria and Morocco for the research in May. I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions for really excellent local cooks who would be up for doing some cooking lessons with me.
I am after the best fresh simple food and from experience it’s always cooked n the home.

    You are very welcome to come and stay in Fes and cook with our housekeeper, Arlia, who has become something of a minor local legend!
