Nomad has been running a guest chefs pop up program since October 2104. In which we have had the immense pleasure to host some extremely talented chefs, all equally phenomenal as people.
A crucial part to achieving this has been our close collaboration with Restaurant 7 in Fès, which runs the holistic Chefs in Residence project that gives in-coming chefs the opportunity to work with Morocco’s extraordinary produce, herbs and spices and interact with traditional cooks, farmers and producers.
With a strong focus on using local, seasonal ingredients, the chefs work, as far as is possible, exclusively with produce and ingredients found within the local markets or nearby farms. The aim is to evolve Modern Moroccan cuisine through the cross-pollination of culinary cultures. The goal is not to reproduce traditional dishes such as tagine or couscous, but to help drive an already strong culinary culture into the next chapter of its history through the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
“It’s an exciting time to be working in food in this country,” says Restaurant 7 owner Steven Di Renza. “Just as has happened in Spain, France and the UK, we believe that Moroccan cuisine has the potential to become the next new-wave gastronomic heavyweight.
