[Editor's Note: Many Ashkenazim have a custom to refrain from eating nuts on Rosh Hashanah, if that is your custom, please note that many of these recipes can be adapted to leave out the nuts or might be enjoyed another time of year.]

The use of the spices in Moroccan cooking is the most important part of the process and pairing them with the right ingredients guarantees a perfect holiday dish.
