Guest Post: Ifrane-Retreat in the Atlas Mountains

Today’s guest post comes from Nicole and Gary Winchester of CultureAddict/HistoryNerd a most awesome blog from the Toronto couple.  You can also find them on Twitter @addict_nerd.  They are sharing about their trip to Ifrane in northern Morocco. Thanks so much for sharing this with my readers Nicole and Gary! Even after being in Morocco for less than 10 hours, we could tell Ifrane was different.  Our first clue was the peaceful stretch of the otherwise mildly terrifying hour-and-a-half ‘grand-taxi’ drive that took us through the National Reserve just east of town.  It was cool, leafy green, rocky and reminded…

Guest Post: Hand Rolled Couscous

If there is anyone that knows Moroccan food it’s Paula Wolfert.  She truly is the queen, the Julia Child’s of Moroccan food in America.  I adore her cookbooks and she is truly such a very kind and wonderful person.  I hope that I have the honor of meeting her very soon.  This is her recipe for hand rolled couscous – a project that I think would be incredibly fun to give a shot.  Paula has assured me that in her new cookbook coming out this fall (inshallah) there will be an updated version of this recipe.  I have two of…

Guest Post – Memories of Morocco

Today’s guest post is from Serene of The Mom Food Project.  I was so excited when she offered to share her story of visiting Morocco as a 10 year old!  (I might be even more amazed that she remembers that trip!)  So what is The Mom Food Project?  Serene says this about the project mission; “I will cook my Mom Food and show it to you. That is, both the food of my mother and the food I make when I’m being a mom.  I will cook your Mom Food if you will let me know what it is.  And I…
