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 Suzanne Tracht, the multi-award winning chef and culinary force behind LA’s iconic chophouse Jar. She’s appeared on Top Chef Masters and Hell’s Kitchen, and is recognized among the leading women chefs in the United States. She’s also one of the most philanthropic-minded humans in the City of Angels and, despite all the accolades, is down-to-earth and ready for adventure. Culture and art, craft and design, a thousand years of culinary traditions—Suzanne is ready to experience it all with us in Morocco.
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 Suzanne Tracht.

3 Reasons to Travel with Suzanne Tracht
A badass business woman who can sear a steak that’ll make your eyes water: Who wouldn’t want to travel with Suzanne Tracht? Her plate might be full of awards, accolades and commendations, but she’s as salt of the earth as they come—and ready to take on Morocco and indulge in all of its incredible offerings.
Best of the Best
Suzanne was awarded Best New Chef by Food & Wine after opening Jar; the late restaurant critic Jonathan Gold consistently agreed, including Jar among his LA favorites. Compassionate, charitable, and hard-working don’t begin to describe her and her impact on the food world.
An advocate for supporting women in the culinary business, Suzanne has also been a longtime super-fan of Najat Kaanache, one of Morocco’s contemporary cooking icons. Najat's restaurant in Fes is an experience Suzanne can't wait to share.
Heritage & Community
Suzanne is excited to explore her Jewish heritage the only way that’s appropriate in Morocco: with a traditional dafina Shabbat stew, lamb tzimmes, and the diverse flavors of Sephardic Jewish cooking in Morocco.
La Maison ArabeMarrakech
Luxuriate in this palatial riad, a traditional stately home centered around a lush courtyard just steps from the medina. 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.
Kasbah Bab OurikahAtlas Mountains
Kasbahs are former fortresses built with high walls—which for us means sweeping views over Ourika Valley farmland and the serene foothills. The sunsets and stargazing here are spectacular. Wander the gardens, relax on your private terrace or in the infinity pool. Our kasbah experience is stylish and nurturing, a peaceful mountain escape with all the modern comforts.
A traditional, opulent riad in the center of Fes with all the comforts of a modern stay. The family-run property puts an emphasis on local, working exclusively with a close community of artisans and craftspeople. With its palatial gardens, rooftop deck and traditional hammam spa, it is the definitive Fes getaway.
