For my last evening in Wisconsin about a week ago, we concocted something of a three-course menu. All recipes were taken from my beautiful new book, Moro East by Sam and Sam Clark. First up was this macaroni and yoghurt salad.
For the spice mixture, we used a combination of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon — as the authors suggest. The Clarks call this blend “baharat,” which, as they note, means “spice” in Arabic. The blend varies across regions, but I think that the mixture of the three spices they suggest is definitely a keeper.
They also note that ground allspice can be used instead of the blend. But, as you can see in the photo, we added just a bit of allspice in addition to the baharat — for good measure. 😉
This represents our seventh completed recipe from Moro East. Percentage complete: 4.38%
