This monthly series is a collaboration with US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Vermont (USCRI). Together we will learn to make three classic, festive dishes from Morocco. Dajaj Mohamer is a roast chicken dish flavored with olives, spices and pickled lemons. It is traditionally served at weddings and is eaten with a baguette. We will learn the secrets for pickling lemons at home to give full flavor to this dish. To accompany the chicken, we will learn to make two vegetable sides that are served throughout Morocco, each region having its own variation. Zaalouk is a popular salad made with fried eggplant and tomatoes and Taktouka is a flavorful dip made with charred green pepper, tomato, garlic and fresh herbs. Our instructor, Houda Musanovic, is originally from Meknes, Morocco and came to the US in 2001. She is a mother of two, as well as an amazing cook and enthusiastic instructor. Houda writes, "I love Vermont because of the diversity and friendly people. I miss home still so I love to make Moroccan food. I hope you will like the dishes I will teach you."
