As Jen and I immerse ourselves in various cultures, more and more we find that we want to incorporate elements that we discover into our everyday lives. On a basic level, this is the very point of our excursions.
In this episode, we’re in the kitchen cooking chicken and chickpeas with Ras el Hanout in a tagine. The fun of Ras el Honout is that it is a combination of spices based on your preferences and imagination. Our recipe is coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, salt and pepper. Feel free to use ours or go wild, we’ve seen recipes with as many as 30 spices!
And, check out the photo gallery below, the Moroccan spa was so inspirational in our last episode that we decided to create a Moroccan bath at home. Again, this is a great opportunity to be experimental. Our bath included coconut milk, epsom salts, Sandalwood essential oil, mint leaves and rose petals. The “cocktail” is Perrier, a splash of cranberry juice and a slice of blood orange. We added a few candles- pure luxury!
