    This dish was not a big hit with my family. I agree with Jani321, the lemon rinds get really mushy and they aren't particularly appetizing. Overall the lemon flavor was just too pungent for me. If I ever make this again I would take the lemons out much earlier, or serve a few thin slices of lemon with the dish when serving.

    I load the flavor combination. I served it over brown rice with the herbs and pine nuts.
    I wonder if this was based on a dish that used preserved lemons. Perhaps I will try that next time.
    I also extended the servings and upped the nutrition by adding a small can of chickpeas.

    Out of the other recipes in "The World in a Day," this one was my least favorite. The flavors were interesting, and I like the saffron, which made everything "pop," but the lemon rinds became very mushy as they cooked. Even when I tried to remove them, they fell apart, and pieces remained. Nothing (IMHO is worse than biting into a mushy lemon rind. Perhaps, if I was to make it again, I would remove the lemons after they cooked awhile (before they got mushy, and then add fresh ones right at the end for looks and to freshen the dish up a bit.

    I thought the flavor of this dish were most interesting. It was a nice change with the lemons and olives and warm spices. I did not use the pine nuts (my family does not like them much, I would try this again

    I didn't think it was awful (I ate it, but wouldn't necessarily make it again, but the family HATED it. :-( I think it may have been the combo of olives and lemon. The couscous was good though.
