Half Day

One of the best ways to encounter and understand another culture is through food. This half day tour focuses on some traditional Moroccan snacks and street foods, as well as Fassi specialties.


  Nosh your way through the winding alleys of the medina ;  I will explain some of the well-known and well-loved comfort foods for Moroccans.
  Load up on carbs at a bakery case, which among several types of bread typically includes varieties of Msemmen as well as Harsha .
  Taste different varieties of honey and smen (clarified then aged butter).
  Pastry cases are full of chebakia and other syrup-laden delicacies as well as briouats, Morocco's answer to the egg roll, which are served sweet or savory.
  Liquid comfort can also be found in classic soups such as bessara, made with dried fava beans and flavored with cumin and olive oil, and harira, traditionally eaten during Ramadan to break the day's fast.
  Sample khlia, a sort of meat jerky preserved in fat and maakouda ( deep-fried potato fritters  ) . Other specialty stands abound:  countless flavors of nougat usually found close to mosques and shrines, dates and other dried fruits and of course, endless varieties of olives.
