Living from tagine to tagine
The colors and scents of the souqs (markets) are intoxicating, but it is the food that makes my head spin. Moroccan cuisine is deliciously, mouth-wateringly, flavorful. Before I finish one meal I'm already thinking about the next – when and where and what I should try next. I find myself living from tagine to tagine. My favorites: chicken tagine with onions, lemon, raisins and almonds at Chez Chegrouni, lamb tagine with orange at La Maison Arabe, and beef tagine with dates at Kasbah du Toubkal. Excited about the culinary tourism that will happen on this trip!
