12 Dec Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Marrakech
With the unveiling of Christmas windows and holiday shopping well underway in the West, here at Riadliving we are planning Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Marrakech.
As some guests prefer to swap the hustle and bustle of the Christmas rush with that of the Marrakech medina, we are ready to provide tips on how to celebrate the holidays with a Marrakech flair. Perhaps a day trip to the Agafay desert where traditional Christmas lunch can be replaced with a piping hot tajine and a camel trek in to the camp? Or Christmas Eve spent on a palace restaurant inside the old Marrakech medina with wine flowing and regional cuisine served?
Traditional holiday cheer!
For travelers who want to celebrate Christmas in Marrakech with familiar traditions, the delicious smell of homemade panettone with pear, dark chocolate ganache, chocolate drops and ice cream will waft out of the kitchen at Riad 72. After all, what would Christmas Eve be without a traditional panettone? Just forget the turkey dinner with all of the fixings. We are going local and serving up a Marrakchi specialty of tanjia spiced with orange and fresh ginger or fresh sea bass for those who prefer a seafood option.
Underneath the banana-treed courtyard, red rose petals will fill the fountain, adding some festive colour. We don’t want to say too much, because after all, there have to be some Christmas surprises.
Roll on 2017
After a wild 2016, we’re looking forward to saying farewell to 2016 and ringing in 2017 on New Year’s Eve in Marrakech. So at our in-house restaurant La Table du Riad by Riad 72, we are planning a New Year’s Eve party in style. We’ve set the menu, added some local touches to entertain us throughout the night and of course we’ve planned a special toast at midnight.
