Food & wine of Morocco

My meal last night was served in a clay cooker called a tagine, it was quite unique and the food cooked perfectly.  Olives and bread are always a start to Moroccan meals.  This particular restaurant did not serve alcohol (probably owned by traditional Muslims which do not consume alcohol)  so after I grabbed a glass of wine from the bar at the Riad to take up to our room and man was it good.  It was better than anything I had in the other European countries and it was Moroccan and it was less money as well.  What’s not to like about this place?
The breakfasts here are amazing.  I start with a Moroccan salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, walnuts, olives a whipped white salty cheese and then oil and salt and pepper, it is divine.  Then I eat a homemade yogurt which is better tasting and purer than any yogurt I have ever eaten and top that off with some beet juice or freshly squeezed orange juice and some rice pudding.  Add to that some strong coffee and I am a happy girl.
