Though I have been admonished severely for forwarding things in the past and
have been good at not doing as I do not like getting electronic a$$ chewings
but I'm going to be bad this once and I am forwarding this to see if anyone
can help.

      Hello All,

      Andrew Zimmerman was in Fez, Morroco and was given a dish to sample
that was served to visiting Kings in period. But the name of the dish was
not mentoined. I am curious to ask if there is an equivelent recipe or name
that can be found in or around the same region.

      The ingrediants mentoined are:
        Red onion
        Broiled Tomatoes (probably not in the orginal recipe)
        Braised Lamb's testicles
        Noodle (this is a cross between pasta and crepes. It appeared to me
to be crepes "chiffon-nod" or "feel-o" dough cut into ribbons)
        The whole thing is served on a large platter and garnished with hard
boiled eggs

      I am also wondering of anyone else had seen this episode and became
curious about the recipe.

      Like I said, there may not be an exact recipe in period for the
ingrediants mentoined. But there must be something similar. Dishes tend to
travel around in some form or another.
