The rainy season persists in Algiers, not a day goes by without a lovely mix of five-minute bursts of rain, or persistent hail/snow/sleet, wind, and 40-degree temperatures. I was lucky to escape to Egypt for a bit of sun and some time to fill up on hummus (seemingly non-existant in Algeria). I bought a big box of dates at the market and have been eating them, filled with peanut butter, chopped into my yogurt, pretty much nonstop. I have some recipes floating about waiting to be posted here, but in the meantime, here's a few things that have caught my eye.
Bram Cookware - beautiful clay vessels, many North African made items (Egyptian bean pots! Tunisian tagines! Cazuelas!)
Paul is eyeing this for his next pie-venture - Chocolate Chess Pie
If only I could get dark greens here, this would be a great use of local ingredients - Rapini with Harissa and Preserved Lemon
Oma & Bella - in our movie queue
Friday night tune - Cayucas, High School Lover
