This is my friend Zhor, taking fresh bread out of a clay oven. The women's association in the village of Ait Messoud began a project to sell their bread in the neighboring villages, as well as the larger town nearby. Eventually, we were able to expand the project to include hand rolled couscous.
This was taken outside my host family's ancestral home in the Atlas mountains in Morocco. I had spent an incredible two days there, meeting all the relatives, sharing wonderful food, and learning about their family farm. One of my favorite memories.
