Traditional Moroccan Evening Dinner

The Moroccan meal: a key element of the Moroccan culture
Our resident cook has many years experience of Moroccan cooking, Many of her recipes have been passed down through her family. They say the best Moroccan meals are not in the restaurants but in their homes. Our cook will prepare a meal just for you. Cooked fresh on that day only using fresh ingredients bought from our local market. All our ingredients are organic. Hence why we need advance notice as the nature of Moroccan cooking takes several hours. A typical example of our three course dinner is: a mixture of vegetable salads lightly spiced with aromatic spices, Cinnamon, Cumin and Ginger served with warm local flat breads. The main course is a Tagine of your choice, Meat, Fish or vegetable spiced with » Ras Hanout » a blend of 35 spices. The Tagine is served with a vegetable steamed Couscous topped with Caramelized Onions. To Finish, either Fresh Oranges sliced and dusted with Cinnamon and Dusting sugar or a light Pastry cake. Tea, coffee or Mint Tea with Moroccan pastries. The Tagine can be replaced if you wish by one of the most subtle recipes of the Moroccan cooking: the Pastilla. Two other menus will allow you to discover either our traditional Couscous with three meats subtly spiced or a Tagine with meat in a orange sauce blending sweet and salty tastes.
