New year and a bit of Moroccan spice

A new year, new start and so much to keep me going. And sorry I’ve been out of touch, busy, busy, busy.

Saw this photo on Pinterest (thanks to http://bit.ly/KFyYdX for the link) and it reminded me of a recently inspired dinner party we had – doesn’t it just conjure up the exotic?

Last weekend we hosted a friend to enjoy my Middle-Eastern cuisine feast. And it lasted 2 meals and then some. We had:
Halloumi cheese (no other cheese would suffice i promise)
Moroccan lamb meatballs with apricots and harisa/yoghurt dip
Marinated chicken skewers with coriander
Fragrant cous-cous with dried apple
Chickpea, pomegranate, mint and cumin salad…
…and some other delectable givings.

What thoughts and ideas do you conjure up when you think of middle-eastern cuisine?

Do share…
