Moroccan cuisine is influenced by Morocco’s interactions and exchanges with other cultures and nations over the centuries.
Moroccan cuisine is typically a mix of Mediterranean,Arabic,Andalusian and berber cuisine.
The cooks in the royal kitchens of Fez, Meknes, Marrakec,Rabat and Tetouen created the basis for what is known as Moroccan cuisine today.
To get under the skin of a country, try getting busy in the kitchen when you’re there.
Local food can teach you much about a society and its traditions; learn to cook a signature dish or two and you also have a souvenir that you can easily recreate at home.
After all, what better way to evoke the memories of a trip than with the same mouth-watering smells that wafted through the markets and restaurants you visited?
Morocco – and Fez in particular – is a perfect destination for cookery classes.
Its cuisine is rich, both in terms of history and the breadth of ingredients, and flavoured with a host of spices from the Indian subcontinent, particularly cumin, cinnamon and ginger.
By taking a class, you’ll learn not only how to identify the quality of these spices, but how to use them effectively – and you’ll be told repeatedly that couscous is most definitely not something you make in ten minutes from a bag.
For those looking for a real cultural experience, you might want to consider a cooking class! Offered in Fes, Meknes, and Marrakech, these experiences are well worth your time.
