Culinary adventure in Morocco

10 May 2017

Located in the old historical Medina, La Sultana Marrakech offers beautiful scenery and delicious local cuisine which is an integral part of the guest experience.
Join us on the rooftop to learn the ancestral knowhow of Moroccan cuisine.
You can learn how to measure a pinch of cumin with precision for the tagine or learn how simply use marinated lemons available at Dima Terroir corner in the boutique.

When in Marrakech, make sure you try a “Tagine”, typical dish of the region served in cone-shaped clay pot dish. A tagine stands for both the pot and the food inside and it can be veggie, with meat, poultry, eggs with a taste of olives, preserved lemon or selected spices.
While you are not yet in Morocco to try, we picked one of our favorite Tagine recipe “Berber tagine ‘façon’ Ghanmi” from our Cook Book to bring these wonderful tastes of Morocco into your kitchen:
