A halal food technology school trip to Morocco offers your students the opportunity to learn more about one of the world’s favourite cuisines!

Moroccan cuisine is a wonderful mix of Berber, Andalusian, Mediterranean, French and sub-Saharan influences. Common features of Moroccan cuisine include Mediterranean fruits and vegetables, halal meat including beef, goat, mutton and lamb, seafood and, of course, plenty of spices!

Your students will love this opportunity to explore Moroccan culture through its cuisine. You’ll check out the lively street food scene at Djemaa el Fna square, and at a beautiful palm grove you’ll enjoy a special Moroccan cuisine workshop where you’ll learn more about some of the salads and cous cous dishes that make up such an important part of the Moroccan diet.

School travel creates memorable moments which empower students by giving them the opportunity to explore different cultures and languages, increasing their confidence and curiosity. I love to help create those experiences for children! – Vanessa Barbosa Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Great destination. Highlights were – the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the mathematical walking tour, rafting, the Da Vinci Museum and the cinema. We had a fantastic maths trip and loved Pisa and Florence. Halsbury were incredibly helpful and efficient from start to finish – I can’t recommend them highly enough. — Denmark Road High School for Girls , October 2018
