Ask MarocBaba: Episode 1 Food and Advice on Moving to Morocco

In Ask MarocBaba by Amanda Mouttaki6 Comments

ask marocbabaThis post has been some time in the making. MarocBaba has chosen to remain quietly behind the scenes for much of my blogging experience. He’s a private and shy person, but over time he’s seen how my website has become more than just a passing status update or a microscope on our life. Yes, you might not see him in pictures or on video that often but he’s reading posts, comments, and helping me discover different angles I might not have explored. In lots of ways I couldn’t do this without him. Now that we’re here in Morocco, he’s also my mouthpiece. He can get us places I couldn’t do alone. I’m also given a much different perspective than other expats because well, he’s Moroccan so I am able to have different experiences!

So this is your chance to have all of your questions answered. He’s going to become a more familiar face.

I got the idea to start this series from Diane of Oui in France, whose blog I really enjoy. She’s an expat living in France with her French husband. There are some questions I just can’t answer so now you’ll get to hear it directly from MarocBaba. Sometimes we’ll do a video, and sometimes it might just be a written answer. If you have a question that you think he’s best to answer, leave it in the comments, or send me an email and we will add it to the lineup!

Oh wondering about the food he mentions? 

Here’s a link to make tangia Marrakechia and although I can’t believe it I don’t have a recipe up for djej m’hamer. I’ll fix that soon!

    We had such a great time with MarocBaba! We loved all the food he introduced us to. I’ll be recommending this tour to everyone!

    What a neat idea! Besides getting his answers and perspective, I loved getting a glimpse of the cityscape behind him. What fun!

      I agree- it was much louder on tape, plus the small person that was behind me making noise midway through. Ah well, live and learn!
