A Culinary Adventure - Discovering Ghoulal, Moroccan Snails Soup

by nizar ennabil on August 11, 2023

As the sun began to set over Marrakech's bustling square of Jamaa el Fnaa, I found myself drawn to the inviting aroma of Ghoulal, Moroccan snail soup. Walking through the lively streets, with their blend of old-world charm and vibrant energy, I was captivated by the enticing smell wafting from the vendor carts. My favorite snail vendor, "Shabab," greeted me with a warm smile, his cart adorned with bowls, lemons, and propane tanks symbolizing the richness of Moroccan street food culture.

This culinary adventure took me beyond the bustling marketplace to my own kitchen, inspired by local artisans, age-old traditions, and the snails' unique source from the region of Nador. My exploration into the making of Ghoulal was a sensory journey, blending peppercorn, cumin seeds, ginger, and a tapestry of herbs to create flavors as complex and captivating as Morocco itself.

As I tasted the soup, memories of my travels to the pottery district in Marrakech on Ourika road came flooding back. There, I handpicked our specially curated glazed bowls, each a colorful piece of Morocco's rich culture and artisanal heritage. They were the perfect vessel for this treasured dish, embodying the authenticity of the Moroccan experience.
