Meet the newest Bay Area chef to star on the small screen — the very talented Chef-Proprietor Mourad Lahlou of Aziza in San Francisco.
A native of Marrakesh, Lahlou has revolutionized Moroccan cooking at his restaurant, even introducing elements of molecular gastronomy to his dishes.
In conjunction with Full Plate Media, he will produce a 13-part series that will explore the foods of Morocco. Each episode will begin in Marrakesh, and end in San Francisco. If the format sounds similar to the show, “Made in Spain” with Chef José Andres, that shouldn’t be surprising since Full Plate Media also produced that series.
A companion cookbook also will be produced just in time for the show’s broadcast, which is expected to be in 2010.
