This experiential insiders expedition will include hands-on cooking classes, guest lectures, guided tours to UNESCO World Heritage sites, and leisure time for shopping and sampling the country’s diverse local fare (tagines, b'stilla, couscous, rustic breads, honey-drenched pastries, succulent olives, fresh oranges, preserved lemons, sweet almonds, countless dates, reputable wine, and ever-flowing mint tea). The late King Hassan II described Morocco’s complex essence best: “Rooted in Africa, watered by Islam, and rustled by the winds of Europe.” Join us and discover this mesmerizing culture through its food and people!

This multi-layered itinerary will traverse: commercial, cosmopolitan Casablanca with its magnificent Hassan II mosque and Jewish Museum (the only such kind in the Arab World); Fes, with its timeless medina or “old city”, an Arab locus of commerce, religion and art during the Middle Ages and the spiritual heart of modern-day Morocco; “The Rose City” of Marrakech with its African, frontier-like spirit, glamorous panache, and storied Djemaa el Fna or “Square of the Dead”; and the picturesque, laid-back, charming Atlantic coastal town of Essaouira.
