Marrakesh: and a tale of New Year's at Peacock Pavilions boutique hotel

Ah, it was New Year's eve at Peacock Pavilions and so we got to cooking.

There was Danish cheese with dried apricot in a bed of organic honey.

And a whole salmon that barely fit into the oven. {And foie gras with onion confit, risotto with shitake mushrooms, roasted leeks, fennel salad, and chocolate fondant.}

I set the table in the Peacock Pavilions dining tent. { Don't the Moroccan tea glasses on hammered silver trays look so pretty?}

A can of golden spray paint came in handy when stenciling the table with Moroccan-inspired stencils from Royal Design Studio. There were golden votives and golden placemats.  White roses went into black and gold Moroccan tea tins.
