Let’s take a journey to the vibrantly colored markets of Marrakech, let’s take a stroll through traditional Fez and have a culinary experience that’s like no other, let’s head to… Williams-Sonoma. Wait, what?
All month long, the gourmet culinary powerhouse is celebrating the "Flavors of Morocco" both online and in stores with a new Moroccan-inspired collection of dinnerware, tagines, glassware and serving ware, a slew of cooking classes, and a bona fide Moroccan expert, Mourad Lahlou, on hand.
The owner and chef of San Francisco’s Aziza and author of the New Moroccan cookbook, Mourad also developed a Moroccan menu of recipes for the collection that includes vegetable tagine and chicken charmoula.
To create the thorough collection, the Williams-Sonoma team visited Morocco with Mourad, going to Fez, Marrakech, Essaouira, and the Atlas Mountains to absorb the local culture and cuisine. The team met with local artisan craftsmen, visited spice stalls in the souks, and even took a cooking class from a traditional Moroccan cook, called a dada.
From now until March 14, enter on Facebook to win a similar weeklong round-trip adventure for two to Morocco. The grand prize includes a two-night stay at Palais Faraj in Fez, a two-night stay at the Four Seasons Marrakech, a private cooking class, and a one-night stay at Dar Les Cigognes boutique hotel in Marrakech.
