The unmistakable taste and aroma in cinnamon will forever be pleasurable. Warming and woody, cinnamon brings a comforting kick to chocolates and pastries alike.
Coconut is actually a seed and not a nut. It has a flavour profile that varies between toasted and sweet to fruity with notes of melted butter. As with most perennial favourites, this versatility is part of the appeal.
Lemons grown in Morocco thrive in the mild warm climate and are one of the country’s star products. The juicy tangy flavour is both refreshing and light and pairs especially well with almond and apricot, coconut, mint and vanilla.
Almonds are a central base ingredient to many Moroccan delicacies. With its gentle sweetness and nutty undertones, almond can be paired with fruits, chocolates, caramels, and creams, always creating a simple but timeless flavour combination.
Mint is central to Moroccan food culture. Its naturally strong and bitter taste is sweetened in all-important Maghrebi mint teas, but when used in chocolates, it acts as a lively and refreshing palette cleanser that is the perfect finish to any meal.
