Trip to El Furn

Zig zagging through streets that barely fit a car, you reach El Furn.

El Furn is a place where all morning, a father and his sons make Manakeesh dough, bake them fresh and sell them for about a dollar a piece.

And by fresh I mean they make and bake them right there in front of you as you almost faint from heat and hunger.

Manakeesh Furns are everywhere and it is amazing that what seems like a simple process can produce a big variance in the quality of Manakeesh from furn to furn.

A perfect project for a researcher - sampling as many Manakeesh as possible to get to the bottom of what furn characteristics correlate with exceptional Manakeesh.

And who best to undertake this research than the king of explaining data and variance in a meaningful way. Bonne tournée de fourneaux
