ROCKLAND – The Good Tern Co-op natural food store and Hole in the Wall bagel cafe at 750 Main Street in Rockland, will host the second Moroccan cooking demonstration on Sunday, Feb. 6 starting at 2:30 p.m.

Murray, a licensed acupuncturist with a practice in Rockland, will teach participants how to use herbs and spices both for physical and emotional well-being and to create a tasty meal. She notes that typical Moroccan spices like cumin and turmeric have been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cancer.

Murray will prepare a fish tagine with preserved lemon and mint. Participants will receive recipes, which come from the book “Tagine, Spicy Stews from Morocco,” used by permission of the author Ghillie Basan. 

The Moroccan cooking classes are organized by the Education and Community Outreach Committee of the Good Tern Co-op. All are welcome to join. Families are especially encouraged to sign up. This class will be held both in-person and online and is free. Registration is required for both in-person and virtual attendance.
