Food in Marrakesh :: part 3
Part 3 of my posts on the past yoga retreat in Marrakesh. This one will probably be my last one about Marrakesh for a while, as I have several other things to update you on...but this one is last, and not least, about the amazing FOOD we had.
The week was an ongoing parade of tastes - all completely vegetarian and completely delicious. Most of the meals were served at Peacock Pavilions, from breakfast and lunches on the outdoor poolside terrace to extravagant dinners in the Moroccan dining tent.
Flavors and spices from sweet to savory were in every bite...
(and sip...as we had a few lovely cocktails throughout the week too! Here were some cucumber mint Pimms sipped poolside during the henna party)
All fresh, local ingredients were served with a mix of traditional and more international flair of recipes.
All meals were multi-courses and served in beautiful displays before each of us.
Dessert was a daily indulgence as well. (shhh.... ;)) and I don't think there were any complaints about that.
What a GREAT group it was - so many laughs were shared each day, smiles/hugs/encouragement given, and life-long friends made. Can't wait to see everyone again sometime.
Here's a video recap of our amazing week:
There's a few spots left for the next Marrakesh adventure in March 2012.
