herbs, spices & veggies
Another Green Garden day in the Medina, to shop & cook our own lunch.

First towards Place des Epices to buy herbs and spices and then straight to the local market, to buy vegetables and fruits.
Heavily packed we returned home to Chambres d'Amis, to get started with the cooking class, under the guidance of Malika and Rachida, kitchen princesses of the house.
Cutting a lot of vegetables and preparing refined seasoning blends and dressings, under the banana trees of the courtyard.
We made various vegetable salads, a vegetable couscous tajine and a delicious fruit salad. Those scents, hmmmm...
While the food was slowly simmering, we were dismissed for a siesta.
At the 'a table' call, we all came to the roof terrace to taste our home-made lunch in the shade.
During the first bites, the afternoon prayer sounded in the background...
