Moroccan Cuisine

Moroccan food blends with various influences from Berber, Andalusian and Mediterranean cuisines. Many tourists visit the country just to try some of the famous dishes of Moroccan cuisine. Some hints of European and sub-Saharan influences can also be found in Moroccan dishes, perhaps due to the diverse range of civilians that reside there. While beef, lamb, goat, mutton, chicken, and seafood are widely used in Moroccan cuisine, a wide variety of delicious Mediterranean fruits and vegetables are also produced by the country. Moroccan dishes carry sour, savory and sweet flavors, and are seasoned with smen, lemon, argan and olive oil, herbs, dried fruits and various other spices.

Moroccan Culture and Designs

Moroccan decor designs are usually colorful with features that are typically fluid lines showcasing comfort as a priority. The elements of the design are intricate, textural and colorful. Moroccan architecture is inclined towards traditional Islamic keyhole designs, such as domes, courtyards, water fountains and gardens. Using ceramic mosaic tiles that are often bold and bright make the doorways, walls and windows, tabletops, picture frames, accent pieces, mirrors, etc. stand out.

Moroccan Climate

While many believe that Morocco is famous for its hot climate, the Atlas Mountains defy that with captivating and not-to-be-missed snowfall each year.
