Full description
Start your culinary adventure by meeting your driver/guide at the allocated meeting point. After a short meet and greet, you will set-off on your tour, making stops at locations known by the locals for their produce and food. On this food tour, you will get to try mouthwatering Moroccan staples such as: • Moroccan coconut Macaroons (a favorite amongst the kids) • The original chicken & almond Pastilla, a savory pie reserved solely for celebrations such as weddings or family get-togethers • The finest local pastries such as Briwate and Ghriyba, in one of the city’s oldest bakeries • Traditional Harira soup, accompanied by dates and Chebbakiya (aka the honey desert rose). This appetizer is how most locals break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan • Babbouche (Moroccan snails), cooked slowly in an aromatic herbal-infused broth • Authentic mint tea & Morocco's most celebrated snacks: Msemmen (Moroccan pancakes), a delicious pan-fried dough, that you can try, the local way, with honey and cheese • Fakya, a variety mix of dried fruits and nuts that is carefully prepared and commonly shared among families and friends during celebrations • Signature olives of Morocco, which come in a rainbow of colors and flavors, from the greens with their creamy smooth texture to the reds tossed in parsley and cilantro Later in the evening, you will enjoy a sit down dinner in a local restaurant. Whilst at the restaurant, you will enjoy a meal consisting of a fresh Moroccan salad and a Tajine (many options available). The portions are generous, the food is wholesome and the Tajines are scrumptious! For dessert, you'll be offered the very popular creamy Raïb, an absolutely divine homemade yogurt. Bon appétit!

This is a must-have experience for anyone who wants to try real traditional local food. Our guide, Yaya, was excellent in walking us through the broad variety of typical street foods, explaining the tradition, preparation and local customs behind each unique flavor in various different neighborhoods inside the medina of Marrakesh. As our guide showed us around the walled district, he also gave us interesting hints on the different architectures and on the history of the town. The stop at one of the best local herbalist shops was very informative about the many healthy spices typically used in the Moroccan cuisine. Icing on the cream, at the end of this enticing food tour, the restaurant served us an excellent Moroccan dinner, not to be missed!
