So today I am watching foodnetwork and I come across Tylers ultimate he is making brick chicken with "moroccan flat bread" and will be over a wonderful bed of couscous. Well mister I have tried your "moroccan" food along with the rest of the crappy foodnetwork stuff the assume that it is. Well as I have been looking all over for a good recipe I have found 1 out of millions that you people think is moroccan because it has either a.) cumin or b.) couscous if you have either of those into your recipe apparently its moroccan. Not only have I had a severly angry moroccan says what is this, this isn't moroccan food. Also this flat bread that you make out of pizza dough and some spices it more like naan bread then anything moroccan. All I want to do is go onto the foodnetwork slap every moron such as tyler and robin miller who think couscous makes life moroccan. GGRRRR. So you ask where can you find good moroccan food that you can make at home for your habibi or something tasty I have a few.

So before you think of making something you "think" is moroccan these are true because my habibi the moroccan from Meknes says so.

This reminds me of how my mom always tries so hard, it's very sweet. When we go over there for dinner she's always pulling out some "Moroccan" recipe that she got off of Food Network and places like that. We never say anything to her, of course, but Wadi always comments to me afterwards about how non-Moroccan the dish really was. Last time I think it was "Moroccan Fish", and it probably had some cumin in it somewhere, lol.

Yeah really. Mexican food here is nothing close to real Mexican food. I don't see us getting all bent out of shape about it. Actually, we frequent Mexican restaurants here in the states even though it's not authentic. I agree with my sister, I think it would be better to tell Food Network instead of us here on VJ.


Just couldn't stay my @ss away!

I'm guessing authentic moroccan cooking makes one angry. I'll stick to the imitation.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

It's funny because the Indian food you can get at some of the places near me are "just like home" but people who grew up eating Indian in europe just don't like it...

There's nothing wrong with changing recipes to suit local tastes.

Unless the person complaining about taste, authenticity, etc., can actually cook and reproduce what they are talking about themselves, I don't give them much credit.

Anyone can whine about anything, but few can just show, teach, educate others and show them how they do things and explain why it is that their way is more authentic.

Heck, one of the best things about the US is the vast amount of cultures squished together into what should be one nation.

If Moroccan food is such a big deal, then open a restaurant or something and share some tasty dishes with the rest of us.

That's why I am an assiduous reader of VJ's MENA cooking pinned thread!!!! I love those authentic recipes!!

And I would NEVER subject Bren to what they call "Mexican food" around here <_< it s-u-c-k-s. I do have a nice real Mexican store right around the corner, so I cook for him (provided he's done the laundry and gave me a foot rub :devil:)

Jenn I think its so sweet your mama does that. My mom would never attempt Moroccan food for Abdou and I to eat...she waits for Abdou to do it for her! lol

You don't know what you're missing! :devil:

You say Europe, but I'm guessing you mean Britain right?

Every time I go to Italy, I ask for some real authentic Hospitaliano
