DINNER AT HOME - Our lady in Marrakech - design consultant - Corrine Bensimon treated us to a delicious - REAL MOROCCAN MEAL - cooked by her cook Naima. Above a Tajine with chicken and lamb kefta (ground meat) sits on a bed of cou cous - I'm not going to give you the recipe - but refer you to - Paula Wolfert - Cous Cous and Other Good Food from Morocco* - which Susan Simon says - and - she should know - "It's the best Moroccan cookbook around." It was the first night that all the house party were together - we arrived in dribs and drabs: First - the birthday girl from New York City - then I arrived from Venice through Madrid, a few days later, our host, John Derian arrived with Boston area based gift shop owner, Joanne Rossman and lastly from New York City through Paris, retail consultant, Mark Haldeman and media fashion commentator, James Aguiar. We are all set to party the night away and have fun together for the rest of the week !

Last year when I was in Morocco in order to participate in an exhibition of Morocco property, it was enough to fell in love with Moroccan food.
In Morocco, eating is like a big social event! I've had dinners with friends that lasted 4 hours, one course after another. The key is, to eat a little of everything! Most meals often have up to 5 courses: starting with bstilla, thin pastry filled with chicken mixture, followed by a tasty kebab, then a tajine of couscous (granular semolina), which is steamed and served with spices, vegetables, nuts and raisins, and often served with rich spicy stews and roasted meats served with Khubz (a round spongy homemade bread), then fruits, pastries and tea at the end. The common ritual is washing your hands and drinking tea before and after the meal. Traditional Moroccans, eat with their fingers (right hand) and sharing food in a big platter. Before eating, people give thanks to God by saying "Bismillah" and at the end of the meal the say "Al Hamdulilah".

I comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I
have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I
read. And on this article Untitled. I was moved enough to post a thought ;-) I actually do
have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it seem like a few of the remarks look like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list all of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
