Planet Food


World, 9pm


Australian chef Ben O'Donoghue starts his journey in Casablanca with a typical Moroccan breakfast before visiting the best new place in town, Les Petits Roches. Here he meets the owner and finds out about the local culture and the restaurant's food and ambience. O'Donoghue then heads north to Fez where he is invited into an old home to learn how to cook harira, the soup that breaks the Ramadan fast.


Venturing up through the snow-capped Mid-Atlas mountains to the Sahara, O'Donoghue meets a nomadic family and learns how they survive in a desert that has been crippled by drought for more than three years.
