September sees the start of apple season at Kasbah Tamadot. During this time of year, over 500 thousand tonnes of apples are cultivated across Morocco, which means there are a huge number of apple varieties to choose from. For example, the Asni apple is not particularly sweet so makes a perfect accompaniment for eating alongside more savoury foods such as meat and fish. Nevertheless, they can also be cooked to create a mouth-watering apple cake!
Our head chef, Benoît, is from Normandy in France and he absolutely loves apples! They are a really versatile fruit which means from a chef's perspective there are lots of exciting, and of course delicious, things you can create with them.
To celebrate, our chefs have been busy developing and perfecting a number of tempting apple-based dishes for guests to enjoy throughout the month. The dishes will be available on our standard and buffet menus on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. And if that wasn't enough, our bar staff have been busy creating a new champagne apple cocktail.
To really get you taste buds tingling, here is a preview of our apple-based menu.
