On Refrigeration

Things tend not to be refrigerated in Morocco. Milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs and sodas are all purchased at room temperature. Most stores have refrigerators, however they are generally not turned on, presumably to conserve on the energy bill. All this leads one to believe that either there is special knowledge here on the preservation of dairy products, or the American obsession with refrigeration is entirely unnecessary.


  1. I was shocked when my host mom kept our eggs unrefrigerated (we didn't have a fridge) for 5+ weeks at a time. Turns out they were just fine. I think the dairy industry has been conspiring to get us to buy more stuff.

  2. Nice blog.
    Gorgeous blog. I liked it.
