I bought some ras el hanout in Morocco. The package says it is a mixture of 35 spices! The sellers said it was their best product and compared it to garam masala. Ras el hanout translates as "head of the shop" or as the English expression "top shelf!", and implies that it is the best mixture of spices the seller has to offer.

You can make your own mix (everyone makes their own version, sort of like curry) and a basic recipe can easily be found online. That being said, World Market makes a decent version and is not very expensive.
