Summary

More than 300 recipes from Tunisia, Morocco, and more: “A tour of North Africa for the traveler, the chef, the shopper and the taste buds.” —Glasgow Herald Arto der Haroutunian takes adventurous cooks on a tour of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya in this comprehensive guide to North African food. There are over 300 recipes for traditional dishes such as tagines, stews, soups, and salads using such classic ingredients as fiery spices, jewel-like dried fruits, lemons, and armfuls of fresh herbs. Simplicity is at the heart of the medina kitchen. The exotic fuses with the domestic to produce dishes that are highly flavored yet quick and easy to prepare. Vegetables are prepared in succulent and unusual ways while dishes such as chicken honey and onion couscous, and “gazelle horns” filled with almonds, sugar and orange blossom water, provide a feast for both the imagination and the palate. Tunisian cuisine is perhaps the hottest of the region, due in large part to the popularity of the chili paste harissa. As well as a strong French influence, pasta is a passion in Tunisia. Morocco’s great forte is its tagines and sauces—with meat and fish being cooked in one of four popular sauces. And Libya, although less gastronomically subtle than Tunisia and Morocco, excels in soups and patisserie. From simple street fare to elaborate banquet food, this collection represents the cooking of the region with refreshingly uncomplicated techniques, short lists of ingredients, and the comforting, elemental flavors of various spices and seasonings.

    Champagne Charlie tells the story of a dashing young Frenchman, Charles Heidsieck, who introduced hard-drinking Americans to champagne in the mid-nineteenth century and became famously known as Champagne Charlie. Ignoring critics who warned that America was a dangerous place to do business, Heidsieck plunged right in, considering it "the land of opportunity" and succeeding there beyond his wildest dreams. Those dreams, however, became a nightmare when the Civil War erupted and he was imprisoned and nearly executed after being charged with spying for the Confederacy.Only after the Lincoln administration intervened was Heidsieck saved, but his champagne business had gone bankrupt and was virtually dead. Then, miraculously, Heidsieck became owner of nearly half the city of Denver, the fastest-growing city in the West. By selling the land, Heidsieck was eventually able to resurrect his business to its former glory.For all its current-day glamour, effervescence, and association with the high life, champagne had a lackluster start. It was pale red in color, insipid in taste, and completely flat. Champagne's success can be traced back to King Louis XV and his mistress Madame de Pompadour, Napoleon Bonaparte, countless wars and prohibitions, and, most important to the United States, Charles Heidsieck.
