An added bonus of any overseas surf trip is often the sampling of new and interesting local cuisine. Morocco is a food-lover’s paradise.
Our long term resident chef Momo has become something of a celebrity amongst our guests, not only for consistently producing exquisite meals day after day, but his uncanny ability in catering to all tastes and dietary requirements.
Due to its geography and history, the cuisine of Morocco is a heady mix of Arab, Berber, Moorish, French, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean African, Iberian, and Jewish influences. Dishes frequently feature dried and fresh fruits - apricots, dates, figs, and raisins, to name but a few. Nuts are popular too with pine nuts, almonds, and pistachios showing up in all sorts of dishes. Think of Moroccan food and deliciously aromatic dishes such as tagine immediately come to mind. Spices have been imported to Morocco for thousands of years and common spices include cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, ginger, pepper, paprika, saffron, aniseed, sesame seed and coriander. Popular herbs include coriander leaf, parsley and mint which is used widely in cooking and famously in deliciously sweet Moroccan tea. At Moroccan Surf Adventures we like to give a flavour of real Morocco alongside other world cuisine.

Along the way, Momo will give you a potted history and insight into the ingredients of this most Moroccan of dishes. His relaxed demonstration is performed out on the terrace over a naked flame so grab a beer and come watch Mo in action. Friday night cookery classes are available to all guests and whilst not obligatory we recommend a look at this lighthearted introduction to Moroccan cooking.
