For Katharina cooking, eating and thinking about food go hand in hand.  Initially a geographer by training, during her repeated stays in Morocco she fell in love with its cuisine and was struck by food’s centrality to social life.  After moving to London to study anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, she returned to Morocco to carry out extensive field research in Marrakech’s homes and kitchens.  Katharina is currently writing and cooking up her doctoral dissertation. 

Katharina will not only be bringing her Marrakech recipes and culinary talents to this Secret Kitchen but also her anthropological insights.  Each course will be introduced with a short commentary covering the practices and flavours of cooking in Morocco, and its relationship to the seasons, religion and tourism, among other things.
