Kitchen Connection Goes to: Morocco!

There is nothing better than arriving at a new country and discovering all the unique foods, spice and smells the nation has to offer. Morocco serves up some of their best dishes in tajines or decorative clay pots. Mouth-watering selections of lamb, chicken and beef dishes, fresh fish and a variety of vegetarian stews are left to simmer in a complex aromatic spice blend until ready to eat with a side of couscous.

Capital: Rabat

Official Language(s): Arabic, French, Spanish, Berber dialect

Morocco’s culture has been influenced by its Jewish, Berber, Arabic and Mediterranean inhabitants leaving its mark on the country’s languages, traditions and architecture. This influence is also reflected in Morocco’s food served in its streets, restaurants and family homes. To truly appreciate Moroccan cuisine, trying traditional sweets and pastries while sipping on a cup of fresh mint tea is the perfect way to round out the dining experience.
