Ainsley’s Mediterranean Cookbook

Episode 4: Marrakesh

Ainsley’s Mediterranean adventure has brought him to North Africa and the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, and this time he’s getting his hands dirty as he gets a pottery lesson from Mr Mohammed, who’s been making tagine pots and the like for over 50 years. He then heads to his riad kitchen, taking with one of Mr Mohammed’s pots to a dish that’s a true celebration of Morocco, a sweet potato and butternut squash tagine.

As the sun starts to set, Ainsley is hitting the main square in Marrakesh for some street food antics, before heading back in his riad kitchen, where harissa and preserved lemon chicken skewers are on the menu, served with a delicious creamy garlic and mint sauce.
