Moroccan Nights

Moroccan Nights

“Moroccan cuisine is influenced by Morocco’s interactions and exchanges with other cultures and nations over the centuries. Moroccan cuisine is typically a mix of Mediterranean, Arabic, Andalusian, and most importantly, Berber cuisine with a little European and Sub-Saharan influence. Spices are used extensively in Moroccan food. Although some spices have been imported to Morocco through the Arabs for thousands of years.

I hope that my Moroccan Nights menu will offer a chance to enjoy some different popular Moroccan foods. The most popular drink is green tea with mint. Traditionally, making good mint tea in Morocco is considered an art form and the drinking of it with friends and family is often a daily tradition. Come along with your friends and family and enjoy.”
