During all these years, the Fez Festival of Sacred Music of the world has been an opportunity to experience great moments of music, lectures and meetings in an extraordinary setting. Each year reserves its surprises and emotions according to the chosen theme. The theme of the next edition is "ancestral knowledge".
An event organized in cooperation with a dozen official riads of the medina to promote the richness of the cuisine of Fez and Morocco through dishes little proposed by the restaurants.
Each riad participant chooses a dish from the gastronomic heritage of Fez or Morocco and prepares it
on request during two weeks days in addition to the other dishes usually proposed. The amateurs of good cuisine can
discover these treasures of the Moroccan gastronomy by dining each evening in a different riad.
Most of these recipes require a long preparation and it is requested to book a day in advance.
A spectacular event taking place once a year in October in the medina.
