After the success of Le Grand Café de la Poste and Bô & Zin, there’s a new member of the family: SAHBI SAHBI – the new Marrakech restaurant that spotlights Morocco’s female chefs and their culinary tradition.
On the strength of a collaborative friendship of more than 20 years’ standing, Helena Paraboschi, Pierre Pirajean, Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty (Studio KO) have combined their complementary areas of expertise for the first time to create this unprecedented collective project.
