Moroccan Food

Olive Stall in Tangier Market

Moroccan cuisine is generally of a very good standard - it is a healthy and varied diet, drawing from Arab, Berber, Jewish, African and French traditions.

The cuisine includes, but is definitely not limited to, tajines (mildly spiced and cooked in a clay dish), couscous and wonderful fresh salads.

Most of the ingredients are locally grown and are used imaginatively with spices, herbs and oils such as argan (an exquisite orange nutty flavoured oil, virtually unique to Morocco).

There are always plentiful supplies of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables including dates, oranges, bananas, figs, melons, avocados etc, which are harvested and bought daily at the local market (frozen food is almost unheard of). Moroccan flat bread is excellent and cooked in local oven daily.

Most breakfasts in raid and kasbah style accommodation are of European in style, generally including some of the following - bread, jam, tea, fruit, yogurts, eggs, coffee and fresh juice.
