The cuisine of Morocco, well represented in Marrakech, is a mix of aromas and flavors .
Many spices, a lot of pepper (well dosed), and a mixture of traditions and peoples .
The inhabitants of Morocco have learned to use olives and dried fruit from the Spaniards. The Arabs have learned how to dose the spices with great skill, but in turn they have taught visitors or conquerors cooking on the grill or inside the Tajine.
All foods are taken into consideration: cous cous, legumes, fish and seafood, lamb, fruit and vegetables and even bread, essential on the table, and which is sometimes used instead of cutlery.
If you go around Marrakech you can experiment, even taste, better still taste this cross-section of culinary history.
