Influenced by Mediterranean and Arab countries, Moroccan cuisine embodies a wide range of tastes and flavors, enhanced by unrefined olive oils, preserved lemons, and flavorful dried fruit which add zest to sauces and stews. Moroccan cuisine is unique because authentic dishes use more spices, including turmeric, cumin, saffron and coriander. Versatile couscous is combined with beef, lamb, poultry or seafood in many authentic Moroccan dishes, including Pastilla, a pigeon meat pie. Another Moroccan favorite, Tajine, which is a slow-simmered stew made of lamb, fruits, and plethora of Moroccan spices, delights culinary visitors. Morocco offers visitors a taste of authentic cuisine, a truly unique blend of flavors, and dishes that will impress even the most seasoned foodie.
