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. He helps me research, write, and keep the website running. Together we also run a food tour in Marrakech. 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. We love to travel and since moving to Morocco are able to explore this side of the world more. While there’s a lot of Morocco angled content here, you’ll also find family travel inspiration, food from around the world, and other things we’ve found interesting. Come join us for the adventure!
