For nearly eight centuries from 711 to 1492, Moorish rule in Andalucia brought about a revolution in Spanish culture. Andaluz is a quest to illustrate the legacy of the Arabs and Berbers in the kitchens of southern Spain today. Couscous, rice, eggplant, oranges, apricots, marzipan, and a wealth of spices are just a few ever-present ingredients that owe their influence to the Moorish people - along with a meticulous attention to the cultivation of olive varieties that Andalucia is renowned for. Fiona Dunlop offers a vivid gastronomic window on this region.
