Rabat - What does the word “bread” mean? According to www.merriam-webster.com, it is defined as a baked food made from a mixture of flour and water. And, while this definition is accurate, any true Moroccan would only shake his head at this greatly over-simplified and culturally empty definition. In fact, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Sahara Desert, and the Algerian border to the Atlantic Ocean, no other food has more importance at the Moroccan table than bread.
