I am pleased to announce the launching of a project that is near and dear to my heart: our non-profit in Marrakesh, Morocco. Our goal is to train at-risk women in Moroccan cuisine and pastries, and open a simple restaurant to sell the food they make. Find out more by emailing me at amalnonprofit(at)gmail(dot)com or check us out on facebook.
Help us raise $5000 in 50 days for the Amal Women's Center.
These books may give you some insight into Morocco. They are on Amazon (US) and if you click on any of them, get to Amazon, and make any purchase (not just these books but ANYTHING), my associate's commission goes directly to help fund the non-profit project mentioned above. It's an easy way for all my US readers to help out.
I met Paula Wolfert by accident at the Marrakesh Airport when she was returning to Morocco after 27 years to research this amazing cookbook. A must buy for anyone passionate about Moroccan food. Plus I am in the book!
The Moroccan cookbook I grew up with. Paula Wolfert was a household name!
Translating spiritual texts from Arabic to English is my father's labor of love. This was his first publication, open any page for inspiration and guidance.
My father's latest work, a beautiful and inspiring read for those who can't access the original Arabic texts.
Commentary and insight for English readers of the Quran.
With this handy book you won't need a guide for the Marrakesh souks!
I couldn't put this one down. Narrative non-fiction is now my new favorite style. I couldn't believe what I was reading, how hurricane Katrina really went down and what Zeitoun did.
Marrakesh much as it was when my parents moved here in the early '80s.
Oldie but goodie. Minimize culture shock by reading this book before you come to Morocco and much will be revealed.
