Food for a Morroco Themed PartyChicken is the most widely eaten meat in Morocco. The most commonly eaten red meat in Morocco is beef; lamb is preferred but is relatively expensive. Couscous is the most famous Moroccan dish along with tajine/tagine. Pastilla (or Bastilla or B'steeya) is a famous Moroccan meat pie, traditionally made with pigeon, but chicken is a suitable alternative.
The use of spices is very widespread and often intense, probably more so than in some of the neighbouring countries. However, to some extent you could get away with borrowing dishes from any of the other Maghreb countries if you so wished.
