Morocco: food

I’ve not yet posted photos of meals, so now is the time.

Kevin and I ate well on Thursday.  Lunch was in Meknes, on a terrace overlooking the King’s garden.  We both had the same thing:

  • chicken broth with fresh cream and a delicious crouton of fried onion
  • pastilla (chicken pie)
  • and dessert for me of oranges with cinnamon.  Kevin had a fruit salad.

Dinner at our riad in Fez was stunningly good:

  • harira, the local soup (served right now as the first course of iftar after the sunset call to prayer)
  • a delicious nut and honey paste that I could have eaten all night
  • small loaves of khobz, the local bread
  • lamb for me, and chicken for Kevin
  • a bowl of fruit for dessert (the remnants of some are on Kevin’s plate)
