Exclusive culinary look at Marrakech, Fes and the Atlas Mountains
You’re navigating a labyrinth of medieval souks as the call to prayer echoes out from ancient mosques. Spices and sizzling kebabs perfume the air. You’re in Marrakech, emerging at dusk into the buzzing heart of the city, Djemaa el Fna, as the vast square fills with soothsayers and snake charmers, musicians and acrobats. Shouts from merchants and food sellers compete for your attention. The experience is chaos, it’s commotion—and it’s incredible, plucked from time and swirling with color and flavor. This is the Morocco you’ve always dreamed of.
Along with you is Edouardo Jordan, the two-time James Beard Award-winning chef from Seattle by way of the American South. Edouardo knows you can’t understand food without understanding where it comes from. He has a passion for the way ingredients and tradition bring cultures together. North African herbs and spices, the home-spun Southern dishes his grandma Meggie used to make, there’s a through-line here that Edouardo can’t wait to explore while we connect with Morocco’s thousand years of culinary traditions.
If your idea of the perfect adventure involves slowing down and experiencing a place deeply—and if you love really good food—this trip is for you. Learn the meaning and tradition behind every bite, at bustling souks and markets, at hands-on workshops with local chefs and artisans. Experience Morocco at its most timeless and delicious with Chef Edouardo Jordan.

3 Reasons to Travel with Edouardo Jordan
The star Seattle chef is a two-time James Beard Award winner, with a passion for cooking that's landed him in some of the world’s top kitchens. But it's his grandma's Southern cooking—and ultimately the spices, traditions and African influences in Southern cuisine—that he's excited to explore, because Edouardo Jordan knows you can't understand food without understanding where it comes from.
Edouardo’s second restaurant, JuneBaby, is a winding road of Southern food’s past. The menu even has its own encyclopedia, because his mission is to share the origin and meaning behind his food.
“When you think about it, the South and Morocco are both so deeply rooted in their food, there’s so much soul to them. I’m interested in experiencing and learning. Travel is all about learning.”
Family Is Everything
Edouardo learned to make Southern dishes like chitlins and grits in his grandma's kitchen. Today, he introduces his son to their heritage and the world through cooking.

It's the epitome of elegance, offering traditional Moroccan craftsmanship, a world-class restaurant and hammam spa. But we won’t blame you if you spend all your time lounging by the swimming pool beneath the swaying palm fronds.
