The Marrakech Of Jamie Oliver And Ottolenghi

When Jamie Oliver visited Marrakech many years ago in 2010, Marrakech became one of the hottest destinations for short breaks. Of course the people in the know knew that Marrakech was one of the food mecca’s in the world. It’s not until one of my favourite chef’s Ottolenghi visited here, that this ancient medevial city came on my radar too. I had to visit this city polished by history and uncover the city which lies behind the high walls with the stunning back drop of the Atlas mountains. Having watched both Jamie Oliver and Ottlenghi making their way through the myriades of streets, markets and enjoying the local street food, it shouldn’t be too difficult to retrace their food steps.

Much to my surprise even as an experienced traveller, it wasn’t that easy at all to find the Marrakech of Jamie and Ottolenghi!

Come back soon and find out how I found my way through this food paradise..
