A 2012 Winner James Beard Award, The Food of Morocco is described as the most life changing cooking experience of Mariana’s career. In 2011 she traveled with photographer Quentin Bacon, to Marrakesh to prepare more than 100 recipes in the kitchen of an old Riad in the Medina of Morocco’s capital. Her favorite part of the project was working with local spices of infinite varieties, shopping for props at the flea markets and rummaging through closets of the hotel to find the perfect platters and visual elements to make this book a timeless and authentic celebration of the food of Morocco.
