Moroccan Tagine Berber

The ultimate fragrant Moroccan stew, a Tagine Berber is my idea of comfort food with aromatic meat served alongside big juicy pieces of vegetables.

It’s time for the MENA (Middle Eastern & North African) Cooking Group. This monthly group has for goal to help us discover the culture and cuisine of the countries found in these parts of the world. The host of the month will choose two savory and a sweet dish from the country and the members pick one dish to make. Get your camel ready as we are exploring Morocco this month with a traditional Tagine Berber.

Thursday’s Thingamajig: French Café Hot Chocolate Maker

I was so excited Tuesday morning. I participated in a contest over at the Chocolate Cult blog and I won!!!! And my prize arrived Tuesday morning at work: a Hot Chocolate Maker.

I received the BonJour 32 oz. French Café Hot Chocolate Maker

Yes, with summer on our doorstep Hot Chocolate may not be the first treat that comes to mind but an Iced Chocolate would certainly hit the spot. In other words this baby can get mileage year round!

The pamphlet horrifyingly shows how to make it with milk and chocolate syrup (ewww) but have no fear I will be suing sugar, cocoa powder and a multitude of exotic flavoring ingredients such as ginger, lavender and cayenne…to name a few!

Just toss in your ingredients, put the lid on, insert the frother and let it froth baby! Oh yeah!


  • 32 oz Capacity hot chocolate frother
  • Comes with an automatic battery powered frother that whips hot milk and chocolate reminiscent of the Aztec’s molinillo frothing tool
  • Ceramic construction
  • Dishwasher and microwave-safe
