Inspired by Marrakesh, Morocco
Once while wandering a medina in Marrakesh with my dad, a friendly stranger beckoned us down long flight of stairs to the bottom of a hammam, where he stoked the fires that heat the community bath. Buried under the ashes was a clay tangia, and we spent an indulgent afternoon sharing its braised lamb and apricots, fragrant with ras el hanout. While the foundation and philosophy of this signature North African seasoning is warmth and welcome—usually represented in cardamom, cumin, clove and cinnamon—each family makes its own enhancements. Our version includes rose petals—this delicate floral note is the reason, he says, his food “tastes like love.” I use the blend as a dry rub for rack of lamb or grilled chicken skewers—the flavors always conjure that Moroccan memory, and the shimmery sound of a welcoming stranger strumming a sitar in the background.
Tips for Success
- Clumping is normal as we don’t use anti caking agents or salt. If clumping occurs simply break apart with your hands before seasoning..
- Try not to pour spices out of the jar over a steaming pot or pan as the steam can get in the jar and cause further clumping..
- For maximum flavor make sure to use with salt.
- Ground spices can burn quickly so make sure to use oil to help distribute the heat more evenly when making a rub..
How do you use this blend?
Here are just a few ideas: Roasted sweet potatoes, Moroccan and Middle Eastern food, chicken, beef, lamb, seafood, try it on popcorn, use it like a curry powder or in fried chicken, soups and stews, tomato sauce.
Where does the name come from?
This blend was inspired by a very generous man I met in Marrakesh, Morocco. He shared his lamb tangia with us while he played his sitar (a stringed instrument). This blend brings me back to the aroma of this meal.
