Living within a Berber village as we do at Dar Ahlam, ingredients for our healthy seasonal vegetarian dishes showcase traditional farming methods. We buy pomegranate vinegar, date caramel, tall herb grass honey and amlou, a luscious spread made from crushed almonds and argan oil, from our neighbors and purchase whatever can be harvested regionally from local producers in the souks.
Whenever possible our dishes incorporate what we purchase from women’s associations in nearby villages, such as goat cheese and argan oil. We have also developed a micro-credit system to involve local breeders in the implementation of a high quality, environmentally responsible animal rearing process, to raise awareness and help promote the quality of animal produce such as chicken and lamb at Dar Ahlam.
Among the bountiful gardens at Dar Ahlam we grow seasonal organic produce as well as elements that are difficult to source such as certain tomato varieties, beetroots and carrots. To appreciate the connection between our terroir and what we serve at our tables, wander through our aromatic herb garden.
In keeping with today's environmental concerns and socially responsibility, our cuisine among all our properties is organic.
