Riads and Riads

We jumped on a train the other day and journeyed inland away from the sea breezes to the hot and romantic heart of Morocco, Marrakech. Known as the "Ochre City", Marrakech was once the capital of Morocco due to its importance being one of the main trading hubs in North Africa and to this day has one of the busiest markets and squares in the world, Djemaa el Fna.

This visit to Marrakech is all about finding riads and locations for our photo shoots once our food stylist Jane Hann and videographer Steve Brown arrive for a two week intensive food and entertaining shooting period. We have been all over town meeting people with a passion and understanding of traditional and modern Moroccan Cuisine, here's a quick selection of a few of our favourite riads so far.
