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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Tomato and Bacon Risotto…or not….

Two things I am a huge fan of are…risotto…and magazines! Well you may be wondering what the two possibly have to do with each other. In Morocco we really battle to get English publications, and as gorgeous as the French and Moroccan publications are, my language skills are still sorely lacking and translating page after [...]

Vegetable Tagine….

So Meat Free Monday was a huge success in our house yesterday, following on the beetroot gazpacho for lunch we had a lovely vegetable tagine for dinner! 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 [...]
