Moroccan Cuisine

Savoring the Isle of the Sunset

Bordered by seas and sheltered by mountains, Morocco is a California-size culinary prize of a country situated in the northwest corner of Africa.

Cross-Culinary Pollination


For centuries, invaders and traders traversed this mountainous country. European, Arab and African influences made their mark upon indigenous nomadic cultures, helping to create a diverse cuisine that is festive and flavorful.

A Taste of Something Fine


Rivers and streams drain rainwater from the mountains, bringing it down into the sun-baked valleys to irrigate orchards and fields of thirsty wheat and vegetables. This rich bounty fills the stalls of Morocco's lively outdoor markets.

The Dish on the National Dish


Couscous, the national dish of Morocco, is made of small-grain semolina pasta, typically combined with saffron, spices, nuts and raisins and served with flavorful stews. Other savory Moroccan specialties include spiced meat pies and roasted lamb.
