Meknes and Meat Free Mondays…..

There is no Moroccan city, town or village which does not have a souk or at least in the smaller villages a weekly market where people can do their shopping for food supplies. On our recent trip to Meknes we visited the covered food hall which is by far one of the nicest I have […]

Baked Meatballs…….

Hi there everyone!  Well the Arabic is going “B’shwiya b’shwiya” – slowly, slowly! Two weeks is only just enough to get the very basics of the language but I am pleased I have done this and will hopefully continue to learn! Secretly my main aim is just to become a better negotiator in the souks […]

Souks, Saffron and Stuffing……

I have longed to go to Essaouira since we arrived in Morocco almost two years ago. So as you may know we finally got to go down that way on New Year’s Day. Well, it was everything people said it was and more! What a gorgeous place, not even the debris on the beach from […]

Comfort Food…..

Happy New Year everyone!! May it be a wonderful year for all of you and your families! Well back to school, back to life and back to normality for us here in Morocco. It was a very short break for us but we did manage to do a day trip or two and a quick […]

Souks and Sardines….

I have really been neglecting this blog of mine over the last few weeks. It just seems a combination of sick children; cold weather and life in general have been getting in the way of all my good intentions of cooking and blogging! Enough excuses though…..  I took a trip down to the Rabat Medina […]

Persimmon and Walnut Bread……

Persimmons have been available for the last few weeks here in Morocco and of course when I saw them I had to buy some. I then left them languishing about until they were well and truly ripened (read, left them in the fruit basket and forgot about them!!!). You can read more about the different […]

Pomegranates and Za’atar…..

There were two ingredients that had me really excited this past week….  1.  The gorgeous pomegranates that are around at the moment. They are so juicy and there is something about the look of them that just says buy me!!!   2. Za’atar – this is a Middle Eastern spice consisting of thyme, sumac and […]

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! It […]

Carrot, Apple and Pecan Muffins…..

The words that really caught my eye in the Ottolenghi Cookbook, were “We wanted to start this book with the quip, ‘If you dont like lemon or garlic…..skip to the last page.’”! I just knew then that I would love the rest of the book! The book is a wonderful collection of recipes based on […]

Happy Halloween……

When the ghosts come out….whoooo……when the goblins shriek….eeeeek…… is what my youngest has been singing non-stop for the last two weeks and now seems to be imprinted on my brain!!!! Halloween is here, and we are even celebrating it in Morocco!! When we first arrived here we seldom saw decorations for Western holidays such as […]
