So I think it’s time I posted more than my standard weekly Wordless Wednesdays which seems to be symbolic of my mindset and life at the moment!!! Too much going on and too little time for blogging! I recently purchased a copy of Greg and Lucy Malouf’s gorgeous book, Moorish! In fact I fell in [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
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…..

Saturday was a strange day, not starting quite as we had planned but turned into one of those days that will be etched into our memories forever! Our local village was hosting their annual fantasia festival this Saturday. It was off to a rocky start with a morning of thunder showers, but nothing was going [...]
Some of the flavours that just taste of Morocco to me have to be the combination of lemon, olives, fresh coriander and flat leaf parsley! All produce that is found in abundance here and form part of so many Moroccan dishes. I am sure I have mentioned this before, but one of my favourite Moroccan [...]
One of the other fruits in season here in Morocco at the moment is figs. They are literally dropping off the trees and for those without a tree; they cost about 5 Dirham (US$ 0.63) for a kilogram! Figs are loaded with fibre and have the highest overall mineral content of all common fruits.Morocco is [...]
Well after a wonderful 8 days in Mozambique, our time sadly had come to an end and we headed back to South Africa. As I said before I would highly recommend a trip there, the beaches are fantastic and the people are generally unbelievably friendly!!! I hope you enjoyed the journey with me!
