I would advice that when planning a traditional Moroccan dinner, focus not only on the food but also on the way you present it and the general ambience of the party venue such that you can generate a truly authentic Moroccan dining experience. With some very simple, creative and resourceful tricks you could end up hosting one of the best Moroccan dinner parties of your life time! Low table, exotic plates, colorful drapery and table cloth can add to the Moroccan experience.

The Moroccans cuisine is known for its exotic and spicy nature. Now personally, I prefer to stick to the authentic Moroccan dishes and recipes. A traditional Moroccan dinner can have almost 50 courses! Obviously, we are not gonna do all fifty. But if you follow the Moroccan dinner menu that I have put together here, I assure you an exceptional and exciting culinary experience

Start the dinner by serving chilled Moroccan Cabbage Salad or Moroccan Carrot salad that can be made with, shredded carrots, fresh garlic, lemon juice, and cilantro. Flavor the salads with traditional Moroccan spices such as cumin, paprika, cinnamon and cayenne.

 Next, serve the Moroccan Chicken Couscous, a Moroccan national dish made from semolina, chicken, and spices. If youare a vegan, then you can prepare a Vegetarian Couscous.

Incase you want an even more elaborate menu then you can also include the Moroccan traditional pastry Bisteeya for dinner. This is a phyllo pastry wrapped around layers of chicken, eggs, a lemon-onion sauce and crushed almonds. The phyllo is coated in a sweet mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

You can end the dinner with fruits like melon or oranges and of course the ever present Mint Tea.
