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.
