I’m Amanda, the only girl up there in the picture. I’m so glad you’ve come to visit me. I am a curious world traveling, mom of two busy boys, foodie at heart, and lover of all things Moroccan. In 2004 I met and fell in love with my husband in fairy-tale fashion on the streets of Marrakech, Morocco and our journey hasn’t slowed down since.
Where Did MarocMama Come From?
In French, Maroc is Morocco and Mama, well that’s universal! I started this blog in 2007 as a way to share my recipes and the recipes of my husbands family as they have been shared with me. As I have grown as an individual and as a mother, it has expanded to include the other areas of our life that are important. You might hear me refer to MarocBaba - that’s him up there. Our two boys have international names that no one can spell or pronounce so for clarity’s sake I refer to them as M and K. M’s the big guy and K’s the little dude.
I hope that you will be inspired to explore Moroccan cuisine and culture. I also hope that through our journey as a bi-cultural family I can offer some insight into the triumphs and struggles along the way. I don’t focus only on Morocco and Moroccan food because that would neglect a big part of our life – my culture! Come join us for the adventure!
