Good Tern Co-op sponsors Moroccan cooking classes

ROCKLAND – Good Tern Co-op natural foods store and baking café at 750 Main Street in Rockland will bring the flavors of sunny Morocco to the public this winter in a two-season cooking series. North African kitchen enthusiast Eileen Murray will be presenting cooking shows on Sunday afternoons, January 16 and February 6, starting at 2:30 p.m.

Murray, a licensed Rockland acupuncturist, looks forward to teaching participants how to use herbs and spices for physical and emotional well-being and to create a delicious meal. She noted that typical Moroccan spices such as cumin and turmeric have been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cancer.

On January 16, the signature dish will be a tagine of spicy kofta with lemon, and on February 6 Murray will prepare a fish tagine with preserved lemon and mint. Participants will get both recipes that come from the book “Tagine Hara from Morocco” Used with permission from the author Gili Bassan.
