As a child I used to hate quince, my parents loved it and every time of the year quince would make its appearance, it would magically end up in my mom’s tagine. As a result I never showed any interest in quince and made sure I stayed away from them. Urgh.Read More
When you have an addiction to a specific food you keep adding it to everything even when it doesn’t make sense, right? Well in my case it always makes sense because my addiction of the moment (aka amlou) is so versatile, it literally works with everything. Yes! And it’s not only uber delicious, it’s also super healthy and easy to make because all you need are these 3 ingredients:
- Argan oil
I just came back from Marrakech where I had the best time! I was there as a guest chef to launch Salt Marrakech’s autumn menu. How cool is that?
The restaurant is based in this magnificent riad called Dar Les Cigognes. Everything about this place is charming and makes you feel so special. The menu is a 6 course-meal focusing on Moroccan seasonal food and modern cuisine.Read More
So??? Are your streets fully covered with beautiful golden leaves yet? I can’t wait!
I made these krachel a few weeks ago and all I’ve been trying to do lately is find the time to bake them again! Krachel are Moroccan aniseed and sesame seed sweet buns. They are prefect in the sense that they are not too sweet to be enjoyed with savoury things but fragrant and rich enough to be enjoyed on their own. I love my krachel warm with butter, salted butter ideally. But I also love them with cheese! Cheese + krachel is really a match made in heaven, believe me.Read More
You know I love Moroccan food but for me Moroccan food means much more than the recipes I share, all the tagines and even more than the tastiest bastilas!

My basbousa is finally online! Let’s all celebrate by making basbousa?!
I am back to London where the weather is kind of “moody” which made me very nostalgic of my trips to Morocco and Ibiza. Summer is officially over for me! Being home also meant I had to deal with my least favourite back-from-holiday task: sorting out all the pictures. It took a while this time. I needed 3 folders! A regular one, a food one and a baby one!Read More
Hello from Rabat! I would love to say sunny Rabat, but the weather has been so inconsistent these pas days, I don’t think it would be fair to make such a statement. That said, it’s been sunny and breezy today so hopefully the heavy, sticky, sand stormy and cloudy days are behind us. Fingers crossed!Read More
Summer is almost over! Well, depends if you consider September is an acceptable extension of summer. And this really depends on where you live. I like to think that September is not summer. September still means for me: “holidays are over and we’re going back to school (or reality!)”.Read More
