Stumbling through the museums of Marrakech brings about wide eyes and a weakness for Moroccan exoticism. Admire collections of artistic rugs, a palace of onyx, and secret gardens filled with romance. You’ll soon discover why this city inspired big creative names like Yves Saint Laurent.
Moroccans love a good salad, and few are prized as highly as zaalouk. This delicious cold starter consists of smoky cooked aubergine with raw tomato, seasoned with a little garlic, cumin, paprika and chili.
These little deep-fried potato balls are a classic Moroccan street food item. Eat them on their own or as part of a sandwich, but don't forget the harissa (garlicky chili sauce)!
