Brilliant hues, bronze hookahs and tables alive with laughter and merriment, such are the sights and sounds of food that feeds the heart and soul.
Tonight, a toast to friendship with Mint Tea.
Sunshine and I began with a generous spread of Hummus, Yoghurt, Olives, Cauliflower, Chilli Beans, Haloumi, Falafels and Chilli Salsa, served with lashings of flatbread. The hummus was light with subtle spice; the yoghurt, creamy and rich; the falafels were crisp and fragrant; the chilli salsa was intense and succulent.
Next, an earthing ground of glutinous couscous, turmeric rice, lentils and yoghurt to match the yoghurt dolloped chickpeas and vegetable couscous.
Dustings of sumac with silvered almonds sit upon fresh yoghurt and chickpeas and crunchy pita crisps.
Juicy portions of tagine stewed potato, carrot and pumpkin crown beads of couscous.
Each dish reinforces contrasting flavours and textures whilst being visually vibrant and exciting. Such tantalizing tastes borrowed from the Middle-East, the roots of Africa, and hints from Eastern Europe and the Spice Road, form a uniting and unique blend that is Morocco.
