When I first came to Morocco I expected this to be an incredible opportunity for me to be able to say that I came. I didn’t have plans to return and didn’t expect to make any. By day three I was plotting my next visit – where to take the kids and what would I show my husband first. Having just finished day five I am considering sending a plane for my family so I never would have to leave.
Over the coming weeks and months I anticipate this blog will be heavily influenced by this trip. Just the food alone is enough to leave me inspired for years. In these posts there will be more details from the trips and I will attempt to share some of the culinary magic that happens in this country.
For now I have some more photos to share from the second day of our trip.
From our time Oualidia, home to first class oyster beds. We enjoyed a paella made brilliantly yellow with Moroccan saffron and loaded with local seafood. Above there is a salad (possibly my new favorite) of tuna, tomato and avocado which is then finished with a balsamic dressing.
From the town of Safi which is home to the oldest pottery kilns in Morocco.
Afternoon and evening in Essaouira. The end of day 2.
