Morocco: Tagine Spices

Moroccan Tagine Spices
by Victoria Challancin

For the longest time, I erroneously thought these lovely multicolored piles of wonder  were Ras el Hanout, that glorious mix of spices so prized by Moroccan cooks.  After multiple trips to Morocco, countless hours of wandering the souks, long   culinary-dominated conversations with various Moroccan friends, I now know that these tempting kaleidoscopic displays are simply called tagine spices.  The Ras el Hanout blends are kept apart, as if a quiet reminder of their special standing in the world of Moroccan cuisine.
