I always receive questions concerning the Moroccan cooking potsTagines that I have, so I present them to you all at the same time, here is my collection of tagines, I am very attached to this object knowing that it is a part of my Moroccan culinary culture. 


Tajines de sousoukitchen


  I begin with this beautiful black tagine that
I bought here in the USA, (the rest of Tagines are bought

in Morocco), it is expensive because the bottom

of this cooking pot is a pan kind Tefal.

  I liked this Tagine

because it has the shape
of a hat, a little bit bizarre but beautiful.

  I bought this tagine during the last holidays
In Morocco, it is a bit expensive because it is the latest

model of tagines this summer, it is rectangle as you see,
the inside looks like a grill.They are sold in  super markets.

This one was my first one,
It is not expensive at all, my mother bought

it for me in the Souk of the medina.

This is a  plate for tangine  and I advise you

not to cook in a tagine without

this plate, you risk breaking them.

 Tajine au Rutabaga2

Tajine au Rutabaga1


My husband was on vacation visting his sister, he brought me multiple things; walnuts, lemons, grenadines, pears and a big bouquet of Ratabagas.
( Regretably I was not able to travel with him because
of my leg).
As soon as I saw the Rutabagas, I thought of a good couscous and a delicious tagine that I used to eat in Morocco at  my mother's house.

I began with a tagine, I just added a few potatoes to give a well-balanced taste, knowing that the flavor of Rutabagas is a little bit bitter.

Hi friends,
I present you a Tagine recipe which is a little different

to other recipes of Tagines which I have already prepared.

It does not contain a lot of spices, this time I exchanged

the spices for a broth, the result was excellent, I hope that

you like the recipe, it is really delicious.

Last year the largest Couscous was prepared in Agadir, and this year the largest Tanjia was prepared in Marrakech.



Last Saturday April 4th, Morocco entered the Guinness Book of World Records, with the dish Tangia a specialty of the red city Marrakesh.

The Tanjia pot was two meters high and one meter wide, it took 20 days of continuous work by three people who are specialists in making traditional pottery, used about 75 kilos of mud to make it.

The chefs who prepared the Tangia , cooked over 400 kg of beef.

It was displayed at the famous town square Jemaal E Fna.

A place famous for its culture and entertainment. Jamaa El Fna became the gathering place for people coming both from different quarters of the city and the surrounding areas of Marrakech to listen to story tellers , the snake charmers who come forward to put a tame snake around their neck or the couple of men making their Halka

(the circle of people surrounding them) bigger.



Gunawa musicians with their unique African music as

well as their acrobatic dances.


There are women sitting and waiting to apply Henna on a woman' s hands, or men sitting nearby waiting to read someone's future either by reading their palms or using cards.

The place is also surrounded by orange juice stands

that make fresh juice day and night.


At dusk Jamaa El Fna becomes illuminated by dozens of food stands making it the biggest restaurant in Morocco. The foods, typically Moroccan, Harira (Moroccan soup), snails, sheep's heads, chicken, couscous, kebab and of course, Tanjia.

The food is exquisite, tasteful and much appreciated by

Moroccans ( including my self of course) and tourists.


Horse drawn buggies called "El Koutchi" is usually used by tourist as a form of transportation in Marrakesh. It lets the tourist see the sides of Marrakesh and hear the stories from the buggy driver.




It is enjoyable to sit at the terrace of one of these cafes and observe the movement, color, culture and history.


Jacque Majorelle was one of the more important collectors of plants of his area. Plants of the five continents are exposed in an enchanting framework. That was the workshop of Jacques Majorelle.






Jacques Majorelle is born in 1886 in Nancy (France). In 1919 he settles in Marrakech to continue his career of painter, where he acquires a ground which was going to become the Majorelle garden. Since 1947 he opens his garden's doors to the public.

Following a car accident, he returns to France, where he dies in 1962. in 1980 Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent repurchase the garden and restore it.


I dedicate this article to the red city " Marrakesh". I have been in many cities throughout my life but Marrakesh is without a doubt my favorite city.
If I had the choice, I would live there for the rest of my life.

Let me share with you some photos of this magnificent city.

Do you believe me now ? I told you Marrakesh is beautiful.


You will find the Tangia Recipe HERE.

Oysters Tagine 062



Normally Tagines are long-simmered dishes, but when your hungry and your belly can't wait, or you simply dont have the time, you can make them relatively fast.
