TANGERINE SKIES AND TAJINE NIGHTS
The classic: Chicken Tajine
Tajine is probably the most traditional dish in Morocco. It might be really easy to make, yet it’s full of flavour and colour. And… as taste is the strongest memory… it might be the best souvenir to take home... Reasons enough to try out our first cooking class. Surrounded by good company and a tangerine sky… All ingredients were there.
Our chef Sanaa shares her secrets:
1. Mix the herbs: coriander, cumin, parsley, turmeric, ginger, salt, pepper
2. Mix the herbs with the oil
3. Marinade the chicken in the mixture
4. Cut the ingredients: onion, garlic, potatoes, carrots, courgette, tomatoes
1. Spread the onion and garlic on the bottom
2. Put the marinated chicken on top.
Put the ingredients that take the longest to cook first (carrots,
potatoes), and put the courgette last. Add some beans on top
Finish off with some tomatoes
3. Season to your liking with pepper and salt and pour some water on top.
Let the tajine cook slowly 45 minutes. When all the water is gone, it’s finished!
Sharing is caring in Morocco... The perfect serve: with "khobz" (Moroccan bread) and good company!
So let's get cosy and get in there!
Hungry for more?
Moroccans love their herbs... and meat! Simply adjusting their herbs they make tajine with kefta, chicken, beef, or fish...
You name it, they love it.
