One of the most striking features of Moroccan cooking is the quality and fquality and freshnes of the ingredients. Produce comes from a land without pesticides, chemicals,
hormones or preservatives. Animals are slaughtered just hours before they are este The meat you are offered will generally be mutton, not lamb. Market vegetables whave been gathered that morning. Spices, herbs, fresh fruit, nuts and dried fruthae an invigorating vitality completely removed from the packaged and imported products available in much of Europe and North America.
lo encourage you, here are explanations of some of the most common and popular Moroccan traditional dishes (for details of Arab and French pronunciation,see Language,
Harira: a thick soup of chick peas, lentils and haricot beans often flavoured witn mutton or chicken, lemon and tarragon.mutton or chicken, lemon and tarragon.
Brochettes: Grilled kebabs of mutton, liver and fat.
Kefta: Spicy meatballs made of minced mutton and offal, often served in a negg sauce.
Pastilla/bastilla: A pie made up of multiple layers of flaky pastry filled With y
chopped pigeon meat, eggs, almonds and spices. Chicken or fish may be used instead of pigeon.
Tagine: Along with couscous, this is the most universal of Moroccan dishes -
slowly simmered stew,cooked in its own juices in an earthenware bowl with a distinctive conical lid. The tagine provides the foundation for using a whole spectrum
of ingredients, spices and styles. The most popular variants found on most menus across Morocco are: tagine de viande (mutton stew cooked with vegetables or serve
alone with prunes); tagine de poisson (bream or sardine stew cooked with tomatoe and herbs); tagine de lapin (rabbit stew); and tagine de poulet aux olives et citron
(a delicious chicken stew cooked With lemon and olives). The lemon gives a deliciou bitter zest to the meat.
Mechoui: Lamb roasted whole on a spit or baked in a special oven. This delicate and fragrant meat, far removed1 from the usual mutton, is eaten with bread. It is, howevel
an elaborate luxury which is often only available if ordered well in advance.
Couscous: This dish is made from half-baked flour which is then ground into semolina-like grains. A perecty prepared couscous is laboriously cooked in a succession of steamings and oilings that allow each grain to cook while retaining adistinct granular texture. couscous served outside of a home or a good restaurant is
unlikely to be found at its best. It is usually accompanied by sept légumes (seven steamed vegetables) with the odd lump of mutton. It can also be served as a pudding
with sugar, cinnamon and rich, warm goat's milk.
Cornes de gazelle: Croissant-like pastries filled with honey and almonds.
- Is Morocco safe for tourists?
Yes, this is a country where you will have no security concerns. Our itinerary is well marked and we will always be accompanied by local guides. Tourists who in the past have been attacked, have ventured to places where even Moroccans would not dare to go. So leave without fear: for my part I feel much more in danger at the Gare de Lyon than in the middle of the palm grove!
-How many participants will there be in the course?
Rest assured, we will be a small group! The course is confirmed as soon as there are 6 registered participants and we can go up to 12, even 15 at most. A small group allows the teacher to have time with everyone; beyond that it is a little bit difficult but not impossible
Finally, know that it is possible to come accompanied by your spouse or your children. The accompanying persons benefit from all the visits, but pay a little less because they will not have the workshop with the instructor.
- The meeting point is in Casablanca or Marrakech airport (depends on the start of our journey)
What time should you arrive ?
no later than 12H00
Ideally it would be best to find a plane that arrives in on early in the afternoon and which leaves in the late afternoon.
If you arrive in a few days before the trip and workshop, we can pick you up before picking up the other interns from the airport. obviously with a supplement
- Who will pick us up and where exactly?

- Where will we sleep the first night?
Our driver will drive us directly from the airport to Casablanca (a 1 hour drive), where we will be expected for dinner and to spend our first night.
- Will we stay several nights in the same gîte?
It depends on the program
- How many will we be per room? Are they mixed?
The rooms have a large beds with bathroom and toilet in each room.
- To whom should we pay the balance of the stay, and when?
- Will we have other fees?
Everything is included in the price: full room and board, internal transport and tours. Just plan a little change for your drinks on the terrace and your souvenir purchases. There is a currency exchange office at the airport, just before the exit, which does not take any commission.
For information, 1 euro = 10 dirhams, 1 dollar = 10 dirhams approximately
- Are sheets, blankets and towels provided?
In all the hotels, sheets, blankets and towels are provided, even at the camp in the desert, where we will spend a night.
- What clothes should you bring?
Take light clothes, because it can be very hot during the day, but also a small fleece for the evening, because the nights are cool.
There is a swimming pool so you can take your swimsuit. Don't forget to bring your sunglasses and a scarf or cap to protect your head!
