This is not one of those perfect blogs. In fact, I am only a law student finding ways to make time for things I love—cooking, traveling, and being a millennial. This is a blog where I mix my journey with yours. On thedanarenéeway, I tell my story by sharing one dish & one destination at a time. And, I feature the people I meet and the moments I experience all through food and travel.
So, I’ll start out by telling the whole truth—I didn’t find this place on my own. Authentic Moroccan food is not a cuisine I experience often. These past several days, I have had the amazing opportunity to work in France. Hind, a stagiaire in the law firm where I am working for the summer invited me out to experience the taste of her home. Truthfully, it has been one of the best meals I have had in Paris. She assured me that if you want to try authentic Moroccan food while in Paris, this is the place to go.
There was a time when I used to be obsessed with pasta. I don’t think my obsession really ever went away, but for a good reason. Pasta dishes can range from being really simple and quick to intricate and complex, but both can be equally delicious. That’s what I love. This pasta dish is pretty easy and on the healthier side (at least that’s what I told myself), as there aren’t too many ingredients and the recipe is adjustable. It can be vegetarian, and even gluten-free if the pasta is substituted.
The week leading up to a holiday is always awkward when it comes to cooking. I haven’t stopped thinking about what to make for Christmas dinner since the day after Thanksgiving. The awkwardness comes with the meals in between, because every meal after Thanksgiving is just a pregame for the next big holiday meal. The week before Christmas is especially annoying because I don’t want to eat anything that is too similar to what I’ll be eating for Christmas dinner. This means that the traditional holiday ingredients that I usually use around this time are off the table when it’s this close to the holiday, including sweet potatoes and anything cranberry really. This might just be me, but I really take Christmas dinner that seriously. This Thai Coconut Red Curry was the perfect solution. It’s an easy dish to double and keep over a few days to give yourself a cooking break. Plus, it still gives off the warm, comfort food[ie] feeling that we all want around this time of year.
