Morocco is a country with a rich and vibrant culture, and its food and olive oil is no exception. For centuries, Moroccan cuisine has been influenced by a variety of different cultures, resulting in a unique blend of spices and flavors. In recent years, Morocco has become increasingly popular as a travel destination, and its food and culture are becoming more widely known across the world.

One reason for Morocco’s growing popularity is its food. Moroccan cuisine is known for its use of fresh ingredients and flavorful spices. Common dishes benefiting from the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil  include tagines (slow-cooked stews) and couscous (steamed semolina grain). Morocco is also famous for its production of extra virgin olive oil, which is used in many traditional dishes.

In addition to its food, Morocco is also known for its vibrant culture. The country is home to a diverse range of people, including Arabs, Berbers, and Jews. Morocco’s architecture, music, and art are all heavily influenced by its multicultural history. Visitors to Morocco can expect to be greeted with warm hospitality and to experience a truly unique culture.

The Popularity Of Moroccan Olive Oil Keeps Growing

It is great to see that the team and many returning customers at Morocco Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil are not the only ones to discover Moroccan style and the wonders of this amazing country.

Supermodel, best selling author and TV personality Chrissy Teigen is well known to Morocco having visited with husband, singer John Legend, in 2015 and again in 2017. In 2016, she published ‘Cravings : Recipes For All The Food You Want To Eat’ which became a New York Times best-seller. This was followed in 2018 by ‘Cravings : Hungry For More’ which coincided with the launch of her collection of cooking and serve-ware called (you guessed it!) – Cravings.

A real force to be reckoned with in the kitchen she has admitted to being obsessed with Moroccan dishes. A recent addition to her Cravings collection is her stylish tagine, based on the traditional Moroccan cooking dish.

The tagine’s conical shape makes a uniquely moist, hot cooking environment for the dish being cooked. The base is wide and shallow, and the tall lid fits snugly inside. As the food cooks, steam rises into the cone, condenses, and then trickles down the sides back into the dish.

Teigen said “My new tagine is here!! This is just like a Dutch oven, so you can made stews or chili.” She said that her tagines remind her of her trips to Morocco. “They remind me of my trips to Morocco and look pretty cool in the kitchen.”

Maybe a little Moroccan style rubbed off on her readers and they can look to use her receipes with our authentic Moroccan extra virgin olive oil.
