The words of Olivier Roellinger

Fatema Hall is an anthropologist and the chef-owner of Le Mansouria restaurant in Paris. We have the same values, and our friendship has grown out of our common passion for spiced-based cooking.
Fatema has shared her research on 'dadas' (accomplished women cooks who traditionally worked for rich Moroccan families) with me. These secrets included a secret recipe for ras el hanout spice blend, which has been passed down for generations.
Our exceptional ras el hanout is made with 28 different spices that we roast, steam, and grind ourselves in our Cancale kitchen laboratories.

Story

In Morocco, each and every cook and spice trader has his or her own recipe for ras el hanout. The blend can contain anywhere from 20 to 50 different spices and thus constitutes the perfect balance of fragrances and flavors. This “imperial’ ras el hanout adds rich, complex flavor to couscous, rice, and lamb or vegetable tagines. It can also be used to flavor sweet recipes that call for almonds and honey.
This precious combination adds distinctive character to the dishes you prepare and infused them with the magic and wonder of 1001 Nights.
