It’s mid-May so we can officially say summer is around the cauliflower, ugh I mean the corner! Ok, not funny.Read More
It's been a while since I've last posted a tagine recipe! Well, this mainly proves one thing: Moroccan cuisine is not only about tagines, don’t you think? Not that I don't love love love our yummy stews but Moroccan food has so many other treasures to offer, like bastila, almond briouates or maakouda!Read More
It’s that time of the year again (already ?), yay!
Supermarkets and stores are filled with gigantic pumpkins and all you can do is give in to their appealing and cheerful orange hue and pick your favourite one.
There are so many things we can do with pumpkin such as vegetarian hamburgers, pumpkin pie, pumpkin jam (we do that a lot in Morocco!) and of course a scary jack o’lantern.Read More
I know it’s been a very long time friends and I had genuine intentions to post this recipe a few weeks ago but as you probably noticed, summer happened and it made me postpone a few blog posts on my editorial calendar #sorrynotsorry.Read More
What’s a Buddha bowl? Because I have been seeing many of them on the Internet these past 2 years and I still can’t figure out what it essentially is. I got the basic concept behind it: compartmenting your salad but then, is that it? Is there no other requirement to achieve a Buddha bowl? I really want to know.Read More
Happy Friday and happy first day of the last month of the year! Can you believe it’s already December? How do you feel about 2018? I have a good feeling about it, but it’s probably because I have this weird habit of thinking that years which end with even numbers will always be better… So let’s see how 2018 turns out. Rendez-vous next year!Read More
Hello from Tokyo where we’ve just spent the craziest few days. We arrived in Japan a week ago and it feels like we’ve been here for a whole month. It’s been so condensed and memorable, I wouldn’t even know where to start if had to describe our whole trip, I guess unforgettable is the word.Read More
This past weekend was the sunniest of all weekends in London, it really felt like summer. We went to the park and had a picnic with Laelia for the first time. She was very intrigued by the ducks and the baby swans but she was also very scared of the grass. Do all babies get scared of the grass? We ate chocolate chip cookies and stuffed batbouts with chicken, preserved lemons and olive tagine. I can’t wait for the weather to be sunny again and prepare more picnic friendly recipes. It was so much fun.Read More
When you’re hungry on a weeknight, don’t have time to cook and still don’t feel like ordering, what do you do? You make loubia! All you need is one pot, 10 ingredients and less then 1 hour! The result is a creamy and flavourful stew that is packed with earthy Moroccan flavours. My mom used to make loubia and add pieces of khlii in the stew while it was still simmering. Khlii is a kind of Moroccan-ized meat jerky, it’s incredibly tasty. It is not on the blog yet but it should make its appearance at some point!Read More
Kalinte, kalentica, karane, etc., so many ways to call this dish! All these appellations refer to the Spanish word “caliente” - which means warm - for the simple reason that this silky and smooth chickpea pie is meant to be enjoyed warm. In a way, we could all save time and just agree to call it "caliente", what do you think? I should petition to make this happen.Read More
