Morocco: Did you know?

Did you know that on this day (March 2) in 1956 negotiations for full independence of Morocco from the French was signed in Paris? By April 7, France had officially relinquished its protectorate in Morocco and later that year Spain also recognised Morocco as an independent state. #themoreyouknow


Morocco has a rich culinary heritage and it is usually one of the reasons many are attracted to the region and guests invited into a Moroccan home are treated most hospitably, often expressed with food. Tasty Moroccan cuisine translates with the subtle play of flavours that combine spicy, savoury and sweet, while techniques such as marrying meat, poultry, or fish with fruit are unforgettable to the palate.
