Talking of Food is a magazine website set up by a group of people who love not only food but also the diversity of its culture. It is not bound by ideology or momentary fads but has an open mind towards opposing views. Its contributors are often experts in their field and discuss wide ranging subjects such as antibiotics in the food-chain, the opposing arguments on GM food or the future of food. On a lighter note see how they make noodles in China or follow Elisabeth Luard's classic series on European Peasant Cookery.

The Rich Tradition: Morocco

As a bonus, Talking of Food is proud to present the pilot episode of The Rich Tradition, which has never been broadcast before. In the episode, entitled Home from the Sea, Elisabeth Luard explores the traditional foods and culture of Tangier in Morocco.

The episode starts with the fishing boats returning to harbour and unloading their catch. Elisabeth then joins a fisherman's family to follow the preparation and share their fish tagine. Visits to the market, to the harvesting of olives and seeing how families make their bread and have it baked in the communal oven follow … couscous being made by hand, steamed over a stew of lamb and vegetables forms another family meal. More markets and street food, mint tea … the episode brings out the rich culinary and cultural traditions of Morocco.
