Savory Moroccan Stew

Well it seems that even an old dog can learn new tricks. I had ordered the Savory Moroccan Stew many times at one of our finest little secrets in Atascadero – Fig Fine Food on Traffic Way. Chris does a wonderful job and also does incredible catering. For a map and opinions see the FIG page on – Just click here for a link to FIG Fine Food with a map.

Tell us what you think. Enjoy!
