    Morocco is home to one of the world’s most celebrated cuisines. Food is a central element of discovery on any voyage into a different culture so we find a great interest in ways to explore the food scene, from cookery workshops to street food tours and fine dining. There’s more than one way to delve into the diverse world of North African cuisine….. foodies read on! 

  • Souk Cuisine

    Souk Cuisine

    One popular way to find out the rudiments of Moroccan cuisine is to learn to cook a meal from A to Z.  That means starting out in the morning by heading into the souks with your guide to purchase ingredients and spices (an interesting cultural experience in itself) before continuing to a private riad venue to prepare your meal. The half-day experience ends with dining on what you have created, washed down with some locally-produced wine. 

  • Street Food Tours

    Street Food Tours

    Street food is becoming a much-treasured jewel of the more adventurous culinary scene. In Fez and Marrakech we can organise for you to be taken around the cities’ ancient medinas, along the way discovering what the locals eat and how they eat it!  Be warned, some of this is not for the faint-hearted and a spirit of adventure is a must. From the open-air barbecue scene of the Jemaa el Fna, to the honey souk in Fez, a great atmosphere and local delicacies are guaranteed. 

  • Tangia Storytelling Evening

    Tangia Storytelling Evening

    Storytelling is an ancient art in Moroccan culture and it’s one that is enjoying a rebirth thanks to some small cultural groups that are giving some more airtime to the subject. Our special take on this is dining at a private and highly atmospheric private venue buried in the labyrinth of alleyways in the Marrakech medina, whilst being treated to stories of old from a story teller. This is also a culinary experience as you’ll head to a local farnatchi (collective community oven) to pick up a clay pot, in which your delicious dinner is cooked…….

  • Moroccan Cookery Workshop

    Moroccan Cookery Workshop

    Cookery classes come in different shapes and sizes in Morocco. Two that we particularly like are a “classic” workshop at in one of the most historic establishments in Marrakech and an excellent organic cookery class in the Ourika Valley. The theme is cooking, dining, exploring the spice culture of Moroccan cuisine and sampling some of the surprisingly good array of locally-produced wines.
