One of the delights of going anywhere is sampling the food.
Another is discovering instant folk art.
Robert's favorite olive seller in the Mellah Market.
He likes his olives extra spicy.
How they glisten!
Good, fresh, raw ingredients are the key to good cooking.......
What abundance! Strawberries are in season now.
A simple couscous with seven vegetables at
Grand Cafe de la Poste.
Salads for Sunday lunch at Villa Riad el Arsa.
Notice the one with oranges and strawberries and cucumber
and mint and all the little decorations round the edges.
And for dessert --oranges again and strawberries.
Imagine having so much fruit and so many veggies you scarcely know what to do with it all...
Then little pastries with nuts and honey.
The ones on the top row look like ripe figs.
Most gorgeous food i have ever seen! Everything now pales- just bought some organic strawberries - full of hope but they are inadequate. Lovely food! don't know who Jimmy is .ReplyDelete

JIMMY HOLLVER = Jamie Oliver the English chef who is trying to make people eat more healthily.
He, himself was dyslexic at school and would appreciate the phonetic spelling of his name!
I adore couscous and the dish with seven vegetables looks fabulous !ReplyDelete
What a trip you had.
Morocco is looking more and more like a place I must visit, and soon, with each of your posts.ReplyDelete
I'm way behind in reading blogs, but catching up. The blue door post was gorgeous. Is there a reason why so many doors are painted blue? Oh what a market! This is an amazing journey you're letting us peek into. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Thank you for showing us this feast, Elizabeth!ReplyDelete
The produce is gorgeous all on its own...and in season, too. Those olives are just begging us to try each of them!
And then you show us the chefs' creativity in their combinations and presentations. Superb!
Since we are now a week into March, I know that spring will be getting here soon. The local farmers markets will soon be showing us some glimmers of what they might be raising. Yet...we have such a long wait before we will truly see "in season" anything.
Haha Jimmy Holiver. Gorgeous food. Beautiful photos. Heaven for fresh food starved eyes. YUM.ReplyDelete
You said it right! Anytime there is food, I am there :)ReplyDelete
Fantastic! I am inspired to awake from winter sleeping and go to my kitchen and make some food with COLOURS!!!ReplyDelete
I do like Moroccan food but have only had it in Potiers in France.ReplyDelete
Great post, Elizabeth!ReplyDelete
Olive photo is brilliante!
The dishes looks delicious.
