Spain. Chef Moha king of tapas

The famous chef Moha, ambassador of Moroccan gastronomy internationally, won the 3rd prize at the World Tapas Championship in Valladolid, Spain with his gastronomic version of the traditional Moroccan “Trid”. Renowned for his creativity and his revisited Moroccan cuisine, Chef Moha dazzled the taste buds of Spanish guests with his gastronomic revisit of the traditional Moroccan trid and his dish entitled “Le Trid Robe Flamenco” during the 4th World Tapas Championship, organized remotely from the city of Valladolid, in the northwest of Spain. “I am the happiest man in the world,” he said immediately after receiving his award. I am proud of our Moroccan gastronomy which allowed us to obtain 3rd place. It was a challenge for me and a unique experience, that of making a dish from a distance, in full confinement ”. The Marrakech chef took up a major challenge. He managed to transform with maestro the traditional dish of the Moroccan trid into a mini-dish that can be tasted in two bites, called “Trid flamenco dress”. Specializing in revisited Moroccan cuisine, Chef Moha faced 15 finalist competitors selected from more than 50 candidate countries. The competition that takes place every year in the city of Valladolid in Spain is a gastronomic event that presents the creations of chefs from all regions of the world. The challenge was to transform the traditional “Trid” into Tapas Thanks to his bluffing gastronomic revisit, our national Masterchef succeeded in sublimating the traditional trid, a typically Moroccan dish made from fine msemen leaves and quail, and thus allowed him to find a place in a world tapas championship in Spain. “I love the trid, I wanted to make something new, a dish that would be unknown abroad,” explains chef Moha. I wanted to show that with us, there were not only tagines, couscous and pastilla,… The challenge was to transform the trid into tapas, it was not easy, I wanted to make it minimalist, that we can taste it in one bite,… The inspiration came to me like that, suddenly, I put the stuffing in the middle wrapped by a sheet of brick and I placed the quail on top with its legs which protruded, like the legs of a flamenco dancer, with all around a brick leaf dress that once again recalls the dress of a dancer, details the chef who claims to use only “products of organic and natural terroir and above all seasonal ”. Made popular thanks to his culinary TV show on 2M, Masterchef of which he is a coach and jury, chef Moha has to his credit several international awards, including the DC Embassy Chef Challenge in Washington, the medal of the culinary academy in France, the prize for the best chef in Moroccan gastronomy issued by the Gault & Millau guide… READ ALSO: Gastronomy: Moroccan cuisine seduces the world
