Moroccan gastronomy

The very best Moroccan recipes by Rachida Sahnoune Chef at the Riad Monceau, leading fine Moroccan restaurant in Marrakech

The Moroccan gastronomy is reputed to be one of the best in the world and Rachida Sahnoune, chef of Restaurant Riad Monceau is certainly one of its best ambassadors. She will share here with you some of her best Moroccan recipes and explain how to make them.

Recipes of tajines, pastilles, couscous, Moroccan salads… many specialties that have made the reputation of Restaurant Riad Monceau and that we are going to teach you here.

You can of course come to learn and experiment directly “on site” during a stay in Marrakech by joining one of the Moroccan cooking classes that are held each morning in the kitchen of Restaurant Riad Monceau (note: only 4 to 5 participants are admitted per set so it is highly recommended to make reservations well in advance).

In case you are interested in Moroccan cuisine and gastronomy we would also highly suggest you give a look to “The Riad Monceau – A palace of moroccan gastronomy“, a beautiful cookbook published by La Croisée des Chemins editors (Casablanca). This book is available at main bookstores, as well as on Amazon but we can also arange a special delivery in case you’d have difficulties in finding it. A free overwiew is available on ISSUU.
