I just got this book in the mail & upon looking through it, I discovered about half the book had to do with Moroccan culture & traditions. If that's what you're looking for then this might be a good book for you, but I just bought it for the recipes. Also, a great deal of the recipes call for butter! From my understanding, most authentic middle-eastern recipes don't call for butter. How can that be right? Needless to say, I'll be returning this book!
