The Experience:

Start off the morning visiting a market and acquainting with Moroccan products while enjoying a tasting on the spot, not to mention a visit with a local producer to discover the process and picking of their fresh products.

Discuss the gastronomy scene in Morocco over lunch and learn more about Meryem’s personal journey between her French formation learning under Paul Bocuse and how she adapted her knowledge and experience to marry so well with her Moroccan roots. Be sure to pay attention to the table art as you will make a quick stop by the local artisan responsible for such splendour and get to witness their creative process.

Wherever you are in Morocco, you can expect to find medinas that stretch far beyond the eye can see and the nose can smell. While you are exploring a local medina you will get the chance to learn about the use and preparation of different spices, honey, lemon confit, olives and more.

Depending on which city you are discovering with Meryem, the experience will include a tour of a contemporary museum or exhibition of young Moroccan designers in various fields like jewellery, clothing, and all things art. If you find yourself in the right area at the right time, you can first hand witness a harvest of wild mushrooms on your hike in the forests of the Middle Atlas accompanied by a guide during the snow and spring seasons.

End the evening over a fine dining experience to relish in the richness of the day’s events and to ask any further questions you might have about Meryem, Moroccan cuisine, or even to rave about this trip of a lifetime!

Many of our travellers seek out a locally connected experience that will give them a true sense of the destination they are in, and we are the curators of all things connected and conscious. We believe that with the right people we can make the right impact that highlights the beauty of a place while respecting and understanding its cultural vibe. This experience is a special opportunity to get your hands dirty, to open your mind (and your stomach) to the bright and bold flavours of Morocco.
