Rabat – Moha Fedal, one of Morocco’s most famous chefs, has won Embassy Chef Challenge 2017 in Washington DC.
The Moroccan chef won the Judges Choice Award at the annual international cooking competition held in Washington DC, where embassies choose chefs representing their countries to create dishes from their national cuisines.
Chefs from 34 countries, including Chile, Greece and Indonesia, competed during the event where Moroccan chef shone with a traditional Tanjia, the pride of his native city, Marrakech.
Assisted by by Moroccan young chef, Fayçal Zahraoui, Moha amazed the judges with the Tanjia, all under the eye of Lalla Joumala, Morocco’s ambassador to the United States.
“Moroccan cuisine has always been known for being rich and of great qualities, which makes it very competitive on the international level”, he told the Moroccan state agency MAP.
Before growing to become one of Morocco’s most famous chefs, the Marrakech native started his professional career in Switzerland where he went to study cooking and remained for 14 years, accumulating experience in international cuisine along with his mastery of Moroccan traditional dishes.
Master Chef Morocco, which has been aired on the national TV station 2M, brought him to a larger audience.
