Earlier this year a range of menus for the Spring and Summer seasons was introduced to our hotel’s ‘Le Jasmine’ restaurant by our young chef, Houcein Id Ahmed.
Having joined Les Borjs in January 2011 as commis chef, Houcein rapidly proved his worth and in January this year he was given his chance to take full charge of the kitchen.
His first job was to produce new dishes for the Moroccan and European à la carte menus as well as around a dozen, daily-changing, half-board menus and a range of lighter meals served to residents at the poolside bar.
Here are some examples, among many others, of the tempting dishes to be found in our ‘Le Jasmin’ restaurant at present: Sea bass tagine with vegetables and olive m’charmal, Berber style; a Timbale dish of prawns and shrimps with purée of lemon-infused avocado and a pear-almond salsa; Stuffed beef roll cooked with thyme; Clove-flavoured duck breast garnished with young vegetables; Pastilla mille feuilles with pineapple and honey cream.
And there’s plenty more where these dishes come from!
To judge by recent q’aire ratings, which have improved steadily month by month, customers approve.
