Moroccan Lamb and Fig Tajine

Lamb, Fig, and Almond Tajine Side

A few months ago we went to have dinner at Ksar Essaoussan in Marrakech. It’s a riad that has been remade into a restaurant, and unlike many riads here, has no rooms for guests – it’s purely somewhere to just enjoy a good meal. Just finding it was an exercise – and we’re quite familiar […]
