Sharing the wonders of travel & everyday adventures

Travel. Food. Photo. Morocco.

The food of Morocco epitomises the vibrant cultural flavour of the nation. Delightfully affordable, thoroughly spiced and served with enthusiasm, I must admit that Moroccan meals spurred a whole new level in my food photo obsession.


Think caramelised onions with olives and prunes, and garlic coated olives of green, black and brown.

Breathe in steaming tagines with tender lamb and turmeric-yellow potatoes, served with fluffy couscous and creamy pilaf.

P1280536P1280471

Enjoy fresh mint crushed into a tumbler of tea and spice-sprinkled kofta on crusty pide. Love tomato drenched chicken with chips on the side.

P1280492P1280532P1280637

Have hot milk on cornflakes followed by pancakes, semolina cakes and exotic fruits.

P1280651P1280766P1280598P1280590

Try camel burgers that taste gamey and rich and grilled chicken salads that pop with fruity flavour.

P1280647P1280680P1280619P1280653

Vibrant plates of orange slices coated in cinnamon for dessert.

Glass-bottled Coke, Orangina and Sprite for a cool sugar hit in the hot Moroccan day.

P1280827P1280764P1290126

Fresh, fragrant salads of cucumber, mint, parsley and tomato.

P1280754P1280828

Expensive red wine in a very dry country (procured using a friend, a ‘guide’ and a crazy motorbike ride).

P1280762P1280728P1280834

Markets with freshly butchered meat hanging above, fruit lined up for squeezing and dessert carts tempting you at every turn.

P1280451P1280877P1280897

Boiled eggs, almonds and fruity conserves on the side.

P1280654

Try little sausages sizzled fresh at the market and dipped in chilli sauce.

P1280889P1280942P1280944P1280950

Awake with stiff black espresso sweetened with two sugars and Berber tea served from a rug on the sand.

P1290193P1290102

Expect tagines everywhere… in the Sahara Desert, in Marrakech Square, in the Fez Medina and on Tangier’s Mediterranean coast.
