Delight your senses with Morocco's

Food & Drink

To really get to know the heart of a country, you need to know its food and drink. Moroccan cuisine is famous throughout the world, and is quite unique. Full of subtle spices and tantalising combinations of flavours, Morocco's cuisine is sure to please every palate.

The tastes of Morocco come from its mixed heritage – a blend of Mediterranean, Jewish, Arabic, Amazigh and West African influences find their way into the cooking pot and fuse together to create flavourful combinations. While you’re in the country you must try the warming tagines, flaky pastillas, spicy hariras and fishy chermoula. When you’re looking for something to drink, mint tea (known as Berber whiskey) is the national drink and you’ll find it enjoyed everywhere.
