Morocco’s national dish: Tagine & couscous
Moroccan cuisine is colorful and varied, just like the roots of its food culture. The first rustic influences come from Berber cuisine, the first inhabitants of Morocco. Especially refined by Arabic and Andalusian cuisine, Moroccan dishes promise a real explosion of taste.
Morocco’s essential ingredients:
Cinnamon, saffron, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.
Moroccan Dining Etiquette:
Moroccans love to invite you to dinner with the whole family. Come with an empty stomach; otherwise, the host might be disappointed. Street food is often eaten with the fingers. However, careful to only use the right hand. Don’t forget Morocco’s “national drink” which is consumed after each meal.
