Ramadan calls for Muslims to fast during the day and feast at night. At elaborate meals to which family members, friends and neighbours are all invited, dishes that took all day to prepare are passed around the table. Ahmed Bouidi explains that the meals are not only about spirituality and the need for nourishment, since they are also about the joys of getting together with others and sharing with the community.
