Day 58 Souk Cuisine

We were very well placed at Kotubia to make the 500 meter walk to the Cafe de France to meet up with Gemma who owns Souk Cuisine.  We met our group for the day, we were four English, two German and Seven Dutch.  First job was a trip around the souk to buy the ingredients, we were each given a bag, a purse and a list.
Olives first on my list, very stylish bag😀
We had a very knowledgeable local guide giving us the lowdown on Souk shopping, spices
And how to turn your teeth orange
Lynn got in on the act
She blends right in with the local women.
Yes that is a Tesco bag and no there are no Tesco stores in Morocco they do however recycle and reuse everything.
By the time we reached 13 a table I was all shopped out and in need of Moroccan tea
The place was well set up for cooking 
We soon got started and our local Moroccan women were experts at cooking and sign language.
Of course they put the expert on the sardine dish
I did let everyone else join in
Preparation done, it was time to take some of the dishes to the bakery to get them cooked in his oven
I wouldn't like this guys job, it was red hot just handing him the tray.


Once back at 13 a Table it was time to start on the cold starters
I then nipped back to the bakery to pick up the sardines
As the meal and the Moroccan rose went down well
Spot the preserved lemons

Then more tea
All in all a top way to spend the day in Marrakech.
