Figs. To me, there is no better fruit on earth… I have always loved it, and I love it more and more, summer after summer. I was wondering why this fruit was my favorite above all the others. Everything made sense when I saw this documentary called « Fig, the Fruit of Paradise»! There, I learned that figs were one of the oldest farmings, very much appreciated since Antiquity and the first fruit quoted in the Old Testament…
I can’t let the summer pass away without offering you a taktouka recipe. For those who don’t know it yet, taktouka is a cooked salad made of tomatoes and roasted peppers. It is one of the classics of Moroccan cuisine. Our gastronomy includes several delicious cooked salads with various vegetables like zucchinis or eggplants (zaâlouk). Taktouka often looks like a zesty puree of tomatoes with green pepper slices. It can be served lukewarm or cold.
How much do you enjoy cooking? If you are reading this blog, it is probably because you like cooking, or at least, you are looking for new ideas. Perhaps, you think as I do that pleasure in cooking depends on circumstances….
Personally, I don’t like cooking just because I have to, at the end of an exhausting workday and under pressure, just to feed others and myself. But moreover, I find that the act of cooking and the energy we put into it depend on our state of mind at that time.
