Morocco is a land of tradition where a century-old cooking art reigns, the heritage of a mix of Phoenician-Berber-Arab-Moslem influenced cultures. The Berbers passed on to a sense of simple and rustic dishes, whereas the Arabs brought the refinement of the East and the flavor of distant spices. It inherited From Syria's Umayyads pastries with honey, almonds and orange blossoms, From Andalusians the taste of dishes combining sweet and salty ingredients, as in the famous “Pastilla”. Finally, mint tea, the national drink par excellence, is a tradition which goes back to the XVIIIth century when the cargoes of British tea arrived in the Moroccan ports.
