Join world traveling food expert, Peta Mathias to experience magnificent Morocco.
“Peta Unplugged, Marrakech” is a six part television series (coming soon on Prime TV) with a difference.
Set in a country renowned for engaging the senses and presented by the effervescent Peta Mathias, “Peta Unplugged Marrakech” offers fresh perspectives on a culture via its cuisine. Follow Peta’s gastronomads on a culinary and cultural tour of Marrakech and it’s intriguing surrounds.
With cooking classes surrounded by rural Berber charm … and the riotous but sophisticated life of Marrakech’s medina … this journey through a land of exotic tastes and places opens the mind and the heart.
Then from the sanctuary of her kitchen Peta lends her wealth of wisdom in creating Moroccan inspired recipes. Over the course of the series Peta introduces Marrakech’s ancient and fascinating old city, or medina.
She buys live pigeons from a Jewish market, delves into Marrakech’s pit roasted lamb stalls, leads her intrepid ‘gastronomads’ into a traditional Berber village, and the melee of a country market. Deep in Marrakech’s spice and olive souks, Peta reveals the essential flavours of Moroccan tagines and the art of creating perfect Moroccan bread.
She visits the ancient sardine fishing port city of Safi, learns the secret behind the perfect pot of mint tea, and journeys to a rural sanctuary for a lesson in Moroccan herbs and Argan oil. And because this fabulous series is not only about food, there’s interior decorating to die for, the ultimate in kaftan shopping, and parties and dancing galore.
“Peta Unplugged Marrakesh” is an intoxicating blend of food, fun, lifestyle, fashion and music and its a direct line to the warm heart of a culture rich in tradition and hospitality.
So pack your bags for six half hour TV episodes of fabulous freedom.
