Best Marrakech Booty?

moejuste | May 9, 2008 06:38 PM

A friend is going to be working in Marrakech the last two weeks of this month, and wonders what I'd like him to bring back for me - hooray! We both like to cook, so I'd love any suggestions for favorite culinary (or other) souvenirs -- preferably stable, reasonably non-perishable, not-looking-for-any-trouble-at-Customs-on-returning items: local ingredients, spices, small household goods or kitchen tools, maybe a local writer's cookbook? Harissa in tubes? Olives, or olive oil? I've also heard that Argan oil is a very good thing...
And (Imshallah) if you have particular preferred brands or sources for any of these, I know he'll enjoy poking around for the perfect 'find'.
Merci bien!
