Explore the classic flavours of Morocco in this virtual cooking class where you'll feel like your kitchen turned into a Moroccan restaurant for the day.
Across Morocco, Chicken with Preserved Lemon and Olives is a classic and loved dish found in homes and restaurants alike. Preserved lemons originated in North Africa in the 1800’s and are used in many Moroccan dishes. Moroccan preserved lemons are made with local lemons rarely found outside the country. These lemons are round rather than the more oblong version you see elsewhere. The lemons are thin-skinned, sweeter and have a more mellow flavor than traditional fresh lemons. They’re marinated in a salty liquid and just a few of these prized yellow fruits can flavour a whole dish.
In your private virtual cooking class, your senses will be in overdrive while lemony chicken simmers on your stove nestled in a sweet and savory sauce. The sauce reduction, known as 'daghmira', is what makes this meal extra tasty. It's silky and smooth and perfect with the french fries that traditionally top the meal. Rich and aromatic, slightly tangy from pickled lemons and briny from olives, every forkful will dance on your tongue.
You'll round out the meal with a unique salad made with orange, rosewater, cinnamon and sugar, plus you'll make Moroccan spiced olives, and enjoy a traditional Moroccan tea ceremony! Book a private a chef, who will video call you live from his home in Morocco. Two and a half hours later, you'll have had an experience you'll never forget.
