We arrived to his house and were greeted by his six children, 3 girls and 3 boys, ranging in age from about 8 to 18. The meal started with tea, cake and nuts and some conversation. The mother of the family does not join us as she is preparing the meal. Most of the family speaks french, the mother speaks only Berber and the rest of the family speaks mostly Arabic.
The eldest daughter brings out a large tajine filled with couscous topped with meat and vegetables. It is delicious, they steam their couscous here and it makes it so much better then what you get back home
Finally the oranges and bananas are brought out and the Mother joins us at last. This a fantastic way to finish a meal by the way, the oranges are so refreshing! We stay and talk for about a hour after dinner about Morocco, art and Canada and feel very welcome in their home. It was a fantastic night! The family gives us a little drum to take home, it's made just like the larger ones that I bought. I hope we get to spend more time with this family, they really opened their home to us and made us feel very welcome.
