Microwaves and Mealie Bread…..

I pride myself on the fact that I have never used a microwave for anything else than reheating some foods, melting butter and chocolate and occasionally making popcorn in…I have never even made “chocolate cake in a mug” – I promise!!!! But seeing as its a new year, with lots of new things going on [...]

Strawberries and snow……

There has been an unlikely combination of events and food in our life over the last week, things that shouldn’t rightly be together but just happened to be….snow and strawberries…   Morocco seems to have joined the rest of the Northern Hemisphere in the big chill and this last weekend we had a great time [...]

Roast Pumpkin and Cherry Tomato Soup….

 Winter is really taking its time getting here and boy am I not complaining!! We have had a few days of wonderful sunshine but it is getting quite chilly at night, perfect for a light soup for dinner.  My kids love butternut soup, but as our stocks have dried up we had to substitute pumpkin!

Chicken and Fennel Tagine…..

One of my favourite places here in Rabat is the Rabat Medina.  It is a wonderful place to have a stroll about, looking at little odds and ends without the hassle that you get in some of the larger medinas in Morocco. There is one little courtyard that has a trader I have come to [...]

Vegetable Tagine….

Tagines are really easy to throw together and if you don’t have a tagine, just use a saucepan with a tight fitting lid! You could serve this with [...]

Beetroot Gazpacho….

One of my favourite recipe books has to be Moro East by Sam and Sam Clark. It combines so many of the flavours I love both from Morocco and Spain in some wonderful recipes. (In fact I love their other two books, The Moro Cookbook and Casa Moro  as well!).  I saw their recipe for [...]

Butternut, Sweet Potato and Sherry Soup for Meat Free Monday….

Meat Free Mondays……..  There is definitely something very comforting about butternut soup. With autumn in full swing here and a definite nip in the air at night this is a perfect light meal. If you don’t have kids (or your kids don’t mind chilli) add a few slices of red chilli when you add the [...]

A little bit of Spain in Africa…

On the Northern tip of Morocco, just east of Tangier, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean, there is a little piece of Spain called Ceuta, in fact further along the coast there is another one as well known as Melilla. The closest for us is Ceuta or Sebta as it is sometimes known in Morocco. [...]
