If the medina and riads are an onslaught of colors, sights and sounds, Sahrai filters them through a GOOPish lens.
You haven’t really seen the real Morocco until you’ve been to Fez we heard.
Most tourists skip Fez, Morocco’s oldest city. That’s a big mistake.
I absolutely love a sweet and savory tagine. One of my mom and my favorite places in the city is a Moroccan restaurant and despite wanting to try other things on the menu, I never can resist the lamb tagine with apricots and dates. So, when Dar 7 Louyat offered Michele and me a traditional Moroccan cooking lesson as part of our stay we jumped at the opportunity. It’s definitely fun to explore a market in a new city but the be immersed in a local experience like we were when shopping with Naima for our tagine ingredients, gave us a whole other view of the souk. We were apart of it! Check out my latest YouTube video to find out how we made this delicious meal of a beef tagine, fava bean soup, salad and a delicious mashed pepper and eggplant blend. After our lesson, they plated it all beautiful for a romantic meal in the atrium. What a unique experience. Despite the language barrier, food brings everyone together. We cooked, laughed, bonded and cried (those onions!) …
