Lady’s Moroccan Cooking Video

My epic foodie trip to Marrakech last week included a great cooking lesson. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try making the recipes at home. I shot a video showing how to make couscous and got a recipe for how to make a cardoon salad. Both can get you cooking Moroccan food.

Here’s the video showing how to make authentic Moroccan couscous from scratch, including an explanation as to why it tastes so much better than the boxed kind:

Lady in Marrakech

It’s sunset in Marrakech. On the roof terrace at Dar Les Cigognes riad, the scene is spectacular. The sinking sun makes silhouettes of giant storks nesting on the rose colored walls of the royal palace, and a long table is set for dinner under the Moroccan stars. I’m offered a glass of local wine, and as I put my nose to it, I breathe in a terroir redolent of exotic spices and souks.
