ERG CHEBBI, Morocco — The bright black silhouettes of our three-camel caravan shone against a tall sand dune like a background drawing of the Three Kings in a Nativity scene. While Georgie, as I had nicknamed my blonde dromedary camel, plodded through this remote corner of Morocco at the edge of the Saharan Desert, I […]
A few winters ago in Rabat, while working on a book about Moroccan food, I went to spend the morning cooking with the family of a friend. There had been a mix-up over the address, and we were getting a late start on four elaborate, long-cooking dishes that would be our lunch. But instead of […]

Morocco Berber villages: Speeding through the centre of Marrakech early on a Friday morning, it was as chaotic as I had expected.
