On a trip to Morocco, this simple dish was served as a starter with other small salads and dips. Orange-flower water is very popular in the colourful cuisine of the Middle East and appears in many dishes, savoury as well as sweet. The tiny quantity used here gives this dish an exotic flavour, but if you cannot find it, or do not wish to use it, leave it out! I prefer to use the pebbly-leafed wintermint here rather than spearmint.

This delicious loaf goes very well at morning or afternoon tea buttered or not and has been made and enjoyed by many students in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. The texture is somewhere between a spice cake and gingerbread but with definite pumpkin character.
