Jamie Does - Series 1
Episode 1 - Marrakesh

Aired - 14 April 2010

Episode summary:

After driving across the USA for Jamie's American Road Trip, Jamie Oliver is hitting the road again for a culinary expedition to six great food destinations a little closer to home. Travelling across Europe and into North Africa, Jamie heads off the tourist track to experience local cultures through their food. In the first programme, Jamie visits Marrakesh in Morocco. He dodges snake charmers to try out the street food of the city, slow-roasted lamb in cumin; prune and beef tagine; and almond and rose water cakes. Visiting a communal bread oven, he makes a tangia: a nomad's stew, slow roasting it around the fires heating the hammam baths. Jamie tries ras el hanout, the king of Moroccan spices, and buys potions from a medicine man who promises eternal obedience from his wife Jools.
