Baked goods, fruit, vegetables and meat are on offer everywhere and the huge range of fine-smelling spices in particular is a treat for the eyes and nose. Marrakech and the "Djemaa El Fna" is a well-known culinary highlight. Countless cooks roast meat dishes on charcoal at their stands and large clouds of steam arise in the square, which is full of music, artists, snake charmers, tourists and locals. Hospitality plays an important role in Morocco. An invitation to dinner is an important friendly gesture and the long day in the kitchen and the preparations are never noticeable to the hosts. The table is well set, you are always prepared for more guests. When the words "Bismillah" (in the name of God) have been spoken, the meal can begin. Traditionally, people eat from a plate or from a tagine by hand. Obligatory bread is always served with the meal, which is a symbol of sharing and which is also used as an aid to eating the tagine. After the meal, the Moroccan national drink becomes the Mint tea (a mixture of green tea and nana mint with lots of sugar). The mint tea is by no means only intended for after a meal, it is enjoyed with pleasure and at any time of the day or night.
