Great coverage of Gloria and Earl Fultz’s long overdue production of Gloria’s Moroccan magic. Let’s hope this is an overture to a new trend in North Fork cuisine.

Back in the last century, Gloria generously shared with me her recipe for mirouzia, a Moroccan lamb stew that involved a complex combination of spices called ras el hanout. That dish elevated my culinary reputation, and over the years I have passed her recipe on to a select few, always with a small packet of the spices (and a byline for Gloria).

That small, time-consuming packet was the key to a memorable dish and the opening of new tastes. Now that we have cHarissa, can ras el hanout be far behind?

How about it, Fultzes?
