Welcome to the Morocca-thon – 7 recipes for 7 days to celebrate the launch of our brand new show, Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco (and to remind ourselves there’s more to Moroccan cuisine than just tagines).
From 30-minute meals to comforting roasts, we have put together this Morocca-thon menu of spice-packed meals to see you through the most tongue-tingling week of your life. We'd love for you to cook along with us every day and upload your photos to the recipe pages. We'll be posting up the best photos on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so keep your eyes peeled.
Tune in to Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco from 25th June at 7pm.
