M is for Moroccan Cuisine

Probably my favorite of all cuisines if I had to choose just one for the rest of my life is Moroccan. Moroccan foodways have been refined over millennia from occupation and integration of the Berbers, the Moors, and Arabic culture. When you think of Moroccan cuisine, think olives, mint, lemons, seafood and lamb- all things that grow with great abandon in this tiny African country.

One of Morocco's most famous flavors comes from its preserved lemons, which are salted and brined like olives. You can easily make your own preserved lemons. For detailed instructions, check this article out: Make Your Own Moroccan Preserved Lemons

You can recreate a traditional Moroccan feast for eight for less than $20. See the detailed menu and recipes here: A Moroccan Feast for Eight for $20

All these foodies today, wow! This sounds great. I'm always looking for new food ideas for my family feast days. Thanks:)

I've had some Moroccan food that I've enjoyed, but there is a similarity to Greek cuisine (probably because of the shared region). I like Middle Eastern, but am not fond of Greek; I like their use of eggplant and enjoy many dishes that have it.
I've been a member of AC for a little over a year, but couldn't keep up with articles. I find it easier to blog than writing articles, yet I do enjoy writing. I'm hoping to find my niche somewhere along the way.
