It is no secret I am a fan of food and cooking, one merely has to peruse my instagram account and witness my #foodporn phase. Traveling, thankfully, has resulted in me having less time for instagramming, and more time for eating.
Yesterday Chris and I participated in a Moroccan cooking class. The two girls running the class took us through the food market in the morning, where they bought some fresh meat and vegetables, and told us about the food available.
After collecting our food, it was back up to the culture cafe where the class was being held. There was a small kitchen used solely for these classes, and as there was only three of us in the class we all got to help out with various tasks. I cut up what felt like a kilo of fresh herbs!
Our end meal was three courses: Above was our starter, of a traditional tomato based soup, an eggplant dip and some local flat breads. Our main, below, was a tagine of lamb, spices, broad beans and artichokes.
We also had a simple dessert of coconut macaroons, with some amazing strawberries. It is safe to say we were well and truly full after all this! We also received a recipe book, so I am sure Moroccan cook ups will be on our horizons.
That afternoon we hiked up the hill we had intended to yesterday. It was easy enough, and offered us spectacular views of the city and the surrounding countryside.
We have one more full day left here today! It has gone so quick, despite being quite slow paced on account of my being sick. It worked out quite well that we had a few days here so we could take our time.
EDIT: here a few extra photos from our last day in Fez. I didn’t take enough for them to make up a whole post!
