andrew zimmern..ah fes

has anyone seen the "bizarre foods" FES?. ah, what a treat while "channel surfing", to find Andrew Zimmern..doing a piece on FES..and while walking in the souk, with Samira..i realized that this was the cook from the riad, where we stayed!! She took us on the same trip to the market, and we also, came back to help her make pidgeon pie...

what fun, i was standing in the same kitchen , at Riad LaRoussa.

anyone else seen this great show. it took you to the tanneries, markets and more.

oh, makes me want to get back soon...

Show was also broadcast here in Morocco. A culinary footnote to all the cooks out there pigeon pie, a local delicacy I think perhaps unique to this country, is made from braised squab (baby pigeon), eggs, ground almonds and warka, a kind of phyllo pastry. Delicious!

Forgot to add that the product is called b'stilla, sometimes (incorrectly) spelt pastilla.

I've also been treated to a seafood version with prawns (shrimp), squid (calimari), clams and flatfish in a spiced tomato sauce. And once a lamb and cheese variety. A strange combination made by my own cook but it worked! You can buy mini versions of chicken b'stilla (dusted as John W mentions) at the food stalls at Djemma al Fna in Marrakech. Also available in some supermarkets and patisseries throughout the city.

Yup, I did the initial consulting for where and what to shoot for the film crew and production on that piece. You can see that episode here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LanSMo8uczs
