La Maison Arabe (21)  Bastilla birthday cake @lamaisonarabe for #MorokrewCarmina @thecrazycook_ph  Ktefa (or ktifa) is a traditional Moroccan dessert sometimes called “milk bastilla.” Rounds of crispy warqa pastry are layered into a stack with sweetened fried almonds and a custard sauce (creme anglaise or creme patissiere) scented with orange flower water. Ktefa may also be prepared with a milk sauce thickened with corn starch or rice flour rather than egg yolks, but I much prefer the richer custard

Fresh seasonal fruit, particularly berries, may be added between each layer or served over the top as a garnish. ( spruce.com) #LaMaisonArabe #Marrakech#Morocco #bastilla #h2hbirthdaycakes#h2hdessertsLa Maison Arabe (22) La Maison Arabe (1)

Souk in Marrakech

By | Morocco | No Comments

We had 2 full days in Marrakech and it was obviously not enough.  The souk has so many beautiful things.  It is actually not chaotic as I imagined – so it is quite pleasant to go around and shop peacefully.  I just put together here all the photos I took around the souk.  I am sure there are other places we missedSouk in Marrakech (2) Souk in Marrakech (3) Souk in Marrakech (4) Souk in Marrakech (5) Souk in Marrakech (6) Souk in Marrakech (7) Souk in Marrakech (8) Souk in Marrakech (9) Souk in Marrakech (10) Souk in Marrakech (11) Souk in Marrakech (12) Souk in Marrakech (14) Souk in Marrakech (16) Souk in Marrakech (17)Souk in Marrakech (22) Souk in Marrakech (23) Souk in Marrakech (25) Souk in Marrakech (26) Souk in Marrakech (28) Souk in Marrakech (29) Souk in Marrakech (30) Souk in Marrakech (34) Souk in Marrakech (35) Souk in Marrakech (37) Souk in Marrakech (38) Souk in Marrakech (39) Souk in Marrakech (41) Souk in Marrakech (43) Souk in Marrakech (44)Souk in Marrakech (2)Souk in Marrakech (3) Souk in Marrakech (46) Souk in Marrakech (47) Souk in Marrakech (48) Souk in Marrakech (49)Souk in Marrakech (1) Souk in Marrakech (50) Souk in Marrakech (52) Souk in Marrakech (53) Souk in Marrakech (55) Souk in Marrakech (56) Souk in Marrakech (57) Souk in Marrakech (58) Souk in Marrakech (59) Souk in Marrakech (60) Souk in Marrakech (62) Souk in Marrakech (64) Souk in Marrakech (65) Souk in Marrakech (66) Souk in Marrakech (70) Souk in Marrakech (71) Souk in Marrakech (72) Souk in Marrakech (74) Souk in Marrakech (76) Souk in Marrakech (77) Souk in Marrakech (78) Souk in Marrakech (79) Souk in Marrakech (81) Souk in Marrakech (82) Souk in Marrakech (83) Souk in Marrakech (84) Souk in Marrakech (85) Souk in Marrakech (87) Souk in Marrakech (88) Souk in Marrakech (89) Souk in Marrakech (90) Souk in Marrakech (91) Souk in Marrakech (92) Souk in Marrakech (93) Souk in Marrakech (94) Souk in Marrakech (95) Souk in Marrakech (96) Souk in Marrakech (97) Souk in Marrakech (1)
