By whind

Hungry anyone? From exciting upstarts to culinary masters, Moroccan chefs are elevating their hometown cuisine on an international level. Whether you’re looking for easy-to-follow recipes or visual eye-candy, we’re dishing out our favorite foodie accounts to follow right now.

Run by Nargisse Benkabbou, My Moroccan Food is the most consistently mouth-watering foodie account we’ve stumbled across. Full of seasonal fare, vegan options, midweek dinner ideas, simple tagines and almond-infused treats. Nargisse’s style is approachable and her recipes manageable even for newbies.

From gorgeous dinner spreads to ingredient closeups, Najat shares her long-documented love of food for all. The TV presenter, chef and activist prescribes food as medicine for living well. "Moroccan' is something you carry with you, that's inside you, that's a feeling,” she told Vice in 2016. “It's not a discussion of the neighbor or the mayor. It's something very personal, like religion—something that doesn't need to be explained to anyone. I don't have an identity issue—I am Moroccan."

The Marrakech-born executive chef own an eponymous, Michelin-starred restaurant based in San Francisco. Mourad cooks traditional Moroccan dishes, using locally sourced California ingredients in a unique fusion of Old World and New.
