Meet Lahcen

Member since: November 2018

Hi, my name is Lahcen and I run an initiative where I work together with local people in villages around Fez to show our traditional culture and get a peek into our daily lives. I have been a chef at some of the top restaurants in Fez. I can teach you how to buy produce in the souks, and can explain the interplay of Moroccan ingredients. I inherited most of my gastronomic know-how from my mother, who organizes an annual festival of couscous near the small mountain village where I grew up. She’s the queen of couscous!
