Occasions: Spiced but not hot, Moroccan Tagine makes the perfect centerpiece to a North African banquet, add a vibrant salad with fresh pomegranate seeds and store bought flatbreads with hummus.The sweetness of the cinnamon and dried fruits appeals to a variety of palates and is a good introduction to more intriguing flavors.
