Thanks to http://bleubirdvintage.typepad.com/blog/ who introduced me to http://www.gilttaste.com/market which is more than fab has has some of the best spices around including saffron which I love for kebabs , rice, pudding and other treats and harissa which is used to make a spicy sauce used in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisa and Libya . Next week is Ramadan so I am planning to showcase some good eats. During Ramadan Muslims must fast from sun up until sun down , refrain from sex, smokes and all other unholy vices. It is pretty hard ! I look forward to sharing some of the images with you all since it is a very special time for Muslims around the world.
$7.95 on the Gilt site a real steal since usually this is only to be gathered in the motherland !
A beautiful picture from the 1001 Arabian Nights :) a book I love :)
