Chef Mohamed’s Moorish Hometown

Just recently the New York Times sent the communal beating heart of Adelaide aflutter with their props to our fine city, including a shout out to our street food prowess, described as a:

robust dining scene that encompasses everything from street (Fork on the Road) to posh (Hill of Grace, atop the redeveloped Adelaide Oval)

IN ADDITION, The New York Times also recently gave Chef Mohamed’s Moroccan hometown a beautiful write up:

Chefchaouen, known for its blue-painted walls – Ben Sklar for The New York Times

Of course, Chefchaouen — or Chaouen, as it’s sometimes called — is already famous as an outrageously picturesque blue-walled city. Inside the ancient gated medina nearly every building is painted an arresting shade of cerulean or azure, the sky blues juxtaposed with white trim and terra-cotta rooftops. Twisting cobblestone paths lead up and up, around the ocher-colored casbah, past a crumbling cemetery where goats graze, to a landscape of green hills and mountaintops, uninterrupted sky extending beyond. It’s like being inside a Chagall painting.

We can’t wait to go back on our next food safari and to bring back even more exciting flavours and Moroccan artisan products to our ‪‎#moorishflock‬ of Adelaide!

If you want to lose yourself for a few minutes in a beautiful pocket of Morocco, read the article and then Google “Chefchaouen” and prepare for a serious case of wanderlust.
