Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Moroccan carrot salad with cumin (Salade de carottes et cumin)

    • mjes on November 04, 2019

      I tried this with spiralized carrots for no particular reason beyond grandchildren like to turn handles. I used the optional cayenne pepper. I went with less cooking than specified - still a bit of crunch rather than tender. This is the kind of recipe that cries out for ignoring the recipes and trying different spicing and sources of acidity. So yes, I'll probably make some version of this, beginning with the variations offered here, many times.

  • Fish with chickpeas (Poisson aux pois chiches)

    • mjes on November 04, 2019

      I generally cook chickpeas using South Asian recipes but this had sufficient seasoning (garlic, chilli pepper, turmeric, sweet paprika, coriander) that I thought it was worth a try. I replaced ground turmeric with fresh turmeric but otherwise kept to the recipe. The seasoned chickpeas with the cooked but not destroyed bell peppers and fish made a very pleasant dish. I'll make it again as an occasional change of pace.

Publishers Text

Celebrated chef and author Joyce Goldstein has a gift for sharing her extraordinary knowledge of unusual and delicious cuisines in such an approachable and joyful way that they quickly become part of the home cook's repertoire.

In Saffron Shores, she brings to the table the sensual aromas and exquisite flavors of the Southern Mediterranean in a celebration of its rich Jewish heritage. From Morocco comes a vibrant orange salad strewn with olives; from Algeria, a hearty tagine of chicken with quince; from Tunisia, a spicy eggplant puree; from Libya, a saffron and paprika infused fish soup-all are authentic, kosher, and a delightful introduction to a healthful, flavorful cuisine for the modern cook.

A fascinating exploration of cultures and cuisine, lush with images, Saffron Shores is as beautiful to look at as its always-accessible recipes are delicious to eat.
