About Taste of Casablanca

Welcome! Taste of Casablanca is eager to show off Moroccan culture and food as experienced by Casablanca locals — in private homes, in Moroccan family-style restaurants, or as street food grabbed on the run while out working or running errands.

Our Story

Taste of Casablanca had its beginning as privately-arranged, home-based cooking classes with Moroccan food expert Christine Benlafquih, the founder of Taste of Maroc. Tourists pulled up their sleeves and got to work making traditional tagines, dip-like salads, fancy bastillas, homemade Moroccan flatbread, and more. Many attendees described the experience as the highlight of their trip to Morocco.

Since then, we’ve expanded to include other kinds of cultural and culinary experiences in Casablanca such as street food tours, in-home family meals, market tours, fresh seafood lunches, and coastal excursions. All allow you to enjoy authentic Moroccan food the way the locals eat, which is the ideal way to discover why Moroccan cuisine is ranked as one of the finest in the world.

We’re proud to be Casablanca’s premier day tour operator dedicated to local culinary experiences and activities. Our small team of carefully vetted guides, hosts, and cooking instructors are intimate with Moroccan cuisine and culture and take pleasure in showing it off. Join us for a memorable experience!
