M'Hencha

M’hencha means 'coiled like a snake' and it often makes an appearance at Moroccan weddings or family events (sometimes so big it covers an entire table!). Here we’re flavouring the almond filling with our QARFA BLEND, plus plenty of orange zest to give a lovely North African fragrance to this spectacular dessert.
