Discover Mouthwatering Moroccan Flavors
Eating in Morocco is an adventure for the palate. The country’s cuisine is a true mélange, incorporating Arab, Berber, West African and Mediterranean influences. Spices, such as cumin, cinnamon, saffron and perhaps most famously ras el hanout (a spice blend for which many Moroccan cooks have their own secret recipe) play a key role in mealtimes here. As do ceramic tagine pots, which are used to slow-cook meat until fall-apart tender. Accompaniments vary, but commonly include fluffy steamed couscous, khobz (a dense bread) or msmemen (a square-shaped pancake).
