Born in Ukraine and raised in Saudi Arabia, Talia has always had a passion for travel and learning different cultures. She studied in California and Amherst, finishing up her hospitality degree southern Spain. Talia began her hotel experience in China, but could not resist the temptation to return to the Middle East. Before long, she found herself waking up to a sunrise on the Dead Sea in Jordan, picking fresh olives in the markets of Amman and driving past the breath taking sky line in Dubai.Eventually, Talia moved to Boston and became passionate about encouraging her friends and family to travel and see the world. Still longing to return to the Middle East, she got an opportunity to travel to Morocco with Audley. The people, the sights, the cultures, the FOOD; everything was marvellous. Talia returned with a plethora of experiences and a desire to share this knowledge with other aspiring travellers.

My favorite experience was cooking with a local family in Fez. Ouliya Amrani and her family have lived in the city for countless generations. You are welcomed to the Riad with Moroccan tea and Ouliya with her mother’s assistance sets off teaching you how to make bread, sweets and a wonderful tajine. As per tradition, the bread is taken through the small alleys to the communal oven. I got a chance to enjoy a delicious homemade meal, learn about the family’s history and experience and even learn some onion chopping tips
