Still Traveling: Magical Morocco - Food, Film & Fine Crafts 

Monday, July 11, 2022 at 2:00 pm

Three Mondays, July 11, 18 & 25, 2022 
2:00-3:15pm (ET) | Virtual

Let us zoom you away on our virtual “trips” to this magical North African country, so different from most Arab-dominant countries. Morocco has its own unique, fascinating culture – a blend of indigenous Berber, Arabian, Sub-Saharan African & European (Christian & Jewish) influences. In this new mini-series on Morocco, our wonderful, local, professional guide returns with a special trio of unique aspects of his diverse & vibrant country!

Our Virtual “Trips” Include: 

Moroccan Cuisine: from Market to Table (July 11) 
Morocco = Couscous. Yes, it’s a most popular dish, but the cuisine offers more than these ubiquitous pasta pebbles. Fragrant and flavorful (but, not spicy), a variety of treats feature lovely combinations of cinnamon, cumin, ginger, saffron, turmeric, nutmeg, and more. Today, tour from market to table to see various aspects of this delightful and delicious cuisine. Please bring a napkin or tissue in case of drooling.

The Hollywood of Africa (July 18) 
Seemingly countless films have been entirely or partially shot in Morocco. Ironically, Casablanca was not one of them. Beyond the fact that many movies made there – from Othello w/Orson Welles and Lawrence of Arabia w/Peter O’Toole to The Jewel of the Nile w/Michael Douglas and Gladiator w/Russell Crowe – join in this tour to better understand how the country earned its nickname.

Captivating Crafts (July 25) 
Traditional design & craftsmanship are deep-rooted in Morocco’s cultural heritage. Materials of all sorts – wool, clay, metals, leather and more – are finely worked by hand using machines and traditional tools to make gorgeous items prized around the world. On this visit, stop by an array of workshops to see and learn about many of the beautiful treasures painstakingly and lovingly created at the hands of Moroccan craftspeople.
