Yesterday, while on my way to the Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa a cart loaded with doughy rounds of goodness rolled passed me. I thought for a second then turned around to follow it. I figured it had to be heading for an oven and where there’s dough and an oven there’s bread. And who can resist fresh from the oven bread? Not I. I watched the dough go in and bread come out then ventured in myself.
The bread was indeed delicious. I ate a little in the shop, fresh from the oven, then stored the rest for lunch. I was very proud of myself when I presented my own bread for a sandwich later in the day.
Mohamad Sadir, the Baker, can be found on Derb Laatabi (no number that I could see), directly across the street from Fuoundouk Oulad Allal Bakchach and halfway between the Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa and the Maison de la Photographie.

**This dough is destined for vendors in the souk.
***Individuals can also drop off their own dough for baking.
