marvelous marrakech - cooking under the banana trees
Piles of freshly harvested vegetables proudly displayed and no waste here. Organic fruits and vegetables in abundance on the local market.
In the morning we went veggie shopping in the medina with our arabic-french shopping list.
Back in the riad with baskets full of fresh ingredients, chef Rachida was ready to show us the tricks of the moroccan cuisine on the patio in the shade of the banana trees.
With help from Rachida and a bunch of lovely assistant cooks, dressed in adorable kitchen aprons, we made ourselves a delicious Moroccan lunch.
And Mohamed showed us how to prepare a pomegranate, without getting even one tiny red spot on his shirt.
Plenty of delicious food! More than enough for lunch and dinner, we cooked for a crowd.
Furthermore we invited Aisha for a moroccan crochet workshop and to join us for lunch on the roof terrace at Chambres d'Amis.
The home-cooked-finger-licking-good lunch was a feast!
