    Trivia

    The Arabs intruded the Moroccan state in the 7th century. They came up with the idea of new types of bread, cereals, spices, and grains in addition to certain sweet and sour sides which the Persians liked. These included raisins with lentils or apricots in couscous dishes of Morocco.

    Apart from the Arabs and Moors, France occupies an important place in the Moroccan culinary world. The flavors that the French brought to Morocco can still be largely found in the fondness of Moroccan locals for café culture, pastries, and also wine.
