Today is the first day of Ramadan, so Mehdi made a Tunisian dish (mechouia) to take to a fast-breaking gathering. Whenever he makes something I haven’t seen before I start nosing around the kitchen and then ask him everything about the dish. Before long we were on YouTube listening to Warda (whom he loves) and watching videos of a woman with fat small hands making bricks and other Tunisian dishes. Ergo, I just found another food website to add my list of favourites, one reason being she turns out to be Jewish and have lots of recipes for Pesach and Purim. Sephardim for the win!
In other news, I’m really going to miss Mehdi.
