The Perfect Tagine at Dar 7 Louyat

Michele and I in the Dar 7 Louyat kitchen

I absolutely love a sweet and savory tagine. One of my mom and my favorite places in the city is a Moroccan restaurant and despite wanting to try other things on the menu, I never can resist the lamb tagine with apricots and dates.

So, when Dar 7 Louyat offered Michele and me a traditional Moroccan cooking lesson as part of our stay we jumped at the opportunity. It’s definitely  fun to explore a market in a new city but the be immersed in a local experience like we were when shopping with Naima for our tagine ingredients, gave us a whole other view of the souk. We were apart of it! Check out my latest YouTube video to find out how we made this delicious meal of a beef tagine, fava bean soup, salad and a delicious mashed pepper and eggplant blend.

After our lesson, they plated it all beautiful for a romantic meal in the atrium.

What a unique experience. Despite the language barrier, food brings everyone together. We cooked, laughed, bonded and cried (those onions!)

Do you have a favorite tagine recipe?! Let me know!

Also be sure to watch Michele freak out over the onions! Haha

  1. Not really, the flavors of all that I’ve tried at local restaurants were so good. I am sure much different than authentic.

      Where are you located? I love Cafe Mogador’s tangine in NYC. But I agree in Chefchaouen I had a tangine that I felt was lacking flavour
