    A friend of mine just mentioned that his wife is spending the summer in with his parents in Morroco. Hubby said if I want her to bring me a few things back, she can but I have to let him know tomorrow.

    What should I ask for?

    Golly, there is so much!

    Definitely go for some cumin. It will be the most fragrant cumin you have ever had in your life. I keep mine in a freezer, only taking out what I need for a little jar on the counter, and even after a year it's more fragrant than anything I have bought in stores. Some black pepper as well. Heck, any spices. Some ground red pepper as well? If they are really generous, you could also ask them to bring back a tagine, but these are heavy and they may not want to!

    You should have a look at Hajar's spice page. A selection of those spices would do you nicely icon_smile.gif

    Thank you both.

    Since hubby is a great cook I have no doubt he'll be asking her to bring back spices and such so my little requests won't be too much trouble.

    Update: Friend just told me theya re bringing me black pepper, cumin, saffron and a tagine.

    Nice for you!! Tell them to be very careful of the saffron. In many areas other sorts of stamens are used than the superiour special crocus' we grow in the Atlas and Rif Mountains. I strongly and heartily suggest ground saffron as it can be tasted in the shop or spice markets, it cannot be passed off as paprika, it has better flavor, costs less, lasts longer and is generally a better product here in Morocco. It is what we use and the inferior faux threads are sold off to unwitting people at times.

    Can't wait to hear how you like what you get and where it came from! icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks for the tip! I'm assuming he will ask his mother who is Moroccan, not his American wife, to pick up the spices. Four of the seven kids are professional chefs (2 in US, 1 in London, 1 in Paris) so I get the feeling Mom is a great cook. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm thinking of asking my friend to let me cook with him so that I can learn some authentic recipes to make good use of my spices.
