Traditional Moroccan food

Food is an important aspect for a Moroccan dinner party. You have a lot of options when it comes to Mediterranean cuisine. Make food the main attraction by picking chicken cooked in Moroccan spices, lamb meatballs, couscous and salads with a lemon zest. Traditional Moroccan thirst quenchers like mint tea and spiced cocktails will go well with the food menu.
