Hmmmm Moroccan honey

The NYT discovers Moroccan honey. Skip the boilerplate travel-writing imagery and take heed, Moroccan honey is great. Especially if spread on a buttered gheif (the much better Moroccan equivalent of Egyptian feteer.)

Well, that's my culinary nationalism post of the day done. Also, one of the most beautiful books you could ever read on Fez, or on Sufi Islam for that matter, is Titus Burckhardt's amazing Fez: City of Islam. Below: detail from a public fountain in Fez.
