Tour description

On this tour we taste Moroccan tapas. We will go to see the most delicious places in the red city.

 

The tour is divided into two parts. First we visited the restaurants in the medina where the locals of Marrakech eat.

 

Flavors of Marrakech takes you to delight delicious meals and dishes cooked by the hands of local Marrakech and also where famous personalities from past and present history have been.

Tagines, the great Moroccan stew:

Vegetables that are cooked together with meat (chicken, lamb or beef) or fish, over low heat and for hours (stews), in a clay container whose lid is an elongated cone. Those are Moroccan tagines (or tagines).

A dish shared with the rest of the Maghreb countries and, without a doubt, a good summary of the essences of typical Moroccan food.

Khbuz bread, eaten alone:

The main characteristic of Moroccan bread (or khbuz bread ) is that it is flat and that it cooks completely against the walls of the oven. In this way, a product is obtained with much less crumb than “European-style” breads and that is absolutely succulent.

It accompanies all types of foods, but the reality is that it is so delicious that many consume this typical Moroccan food without any accompaniment , as if it were a bun.

The omnipresence of couscous:

If the tagine is essential to know and understand the basis of typical Moroccan food , couscous (or cous cous) is no less so. Like that one, it is a stew based on meat and vegetables but, in this case, the base is wheat semolina . In addition, all this is cooked with abundant chickpeas.

As important as the dish itself is the cooking broth , with which the couscous is then watered once on the table. That broth can also be the base of the harira. That is, the soup, by definition, of Moroccan cuisine.

Harira, star of Moroccan soups:

In essence, harira is a soup made with the cooking broth of vegetables, various meats and legumes. To make it one of the most popular dishes in typical Moroccan food, tomatoes and aromatic herbs are added, such as mint or coriander . And, in addition, a not-so-secret component is added, harissa , which we explain later.


And more surprises with Aladdina Viajeros await you

Probamos algunas cosas en puestos callejeros, no todos se atrevieron a todo. Y luego fuimos a un par de sitios tradicionales baratos y ricos y muy bien. Todo muy bien explicado y sin presión por probar lo extraño o nuevo

The tour provides a perfect introduction to Moroccan cuisine and tradition. Also at the end of the tour additional information about how to continue exploring the Moroccan kitchen was given to cover my whole stay. Greatly recommended!
