I am truly honoured and humbled to have been a guest of a Nomad family sharing a Berber tea in the Sahara Desert, one of the harshest environments on our planet.

I know how I want my meat - like the Berber's where the animal has roamed free, not injected with anything or packaged in plastic. (Click on image for optimised viewing)
