As part of our Fes excursions, Fes cooking class is an opportunity for everyone who loves to cook to learn everything about Moroccan food and learn how to prepare it, starting from getting groceries to preparing the final dish and presenting it in Moroccan style and decoration.
Fes cooking class’ length depends on the dishes you want to prepare and the experience of the guests. The experienced and skilled cooks we cooperate with are very knowledgeable of Moroccan food and have thought many classes to tourists. There is a wide variety of dishes that you can learn to cook as the Moroccan cuisine is very rich, diverse and considered to be one of the most important cuisines in the world with many delightful dishes that have gained their fame and great reputation through centuries of different dynasties, being able to change and improve with time to satisfy and appease the needs of the Moroccan people. The most famous dishes that tourists like to learn how to prepare are: different types of Tagine (Chicken Tagine with olives, Tagine with meat and vegetables, Tagine with meat & Prunes,…), Different types of Couscous (Couscous with meat and vegetables, couscous with raisins and onions,….), Pastillas (Chicken Pastilla, Fish Pastilla,…), Moroccan Soup “Hrira” and some Moroccan Salads. We have different itineraries from which you can choose the one that suits your needs best. Our Fes cooking class offers a complete Moroccan cooking experience as we not only teach you how to cook but we make sure that you learn how to get fresh and best quality groceries before we get on with the cooking, for the quality and freshness of each of the ingredients contributes in a major way to the status of the final dish. Straight after you choose your itinerary, your teacher is going to brief you about the dishes and ingredients, from that point the teacher will act as a group leader and divide missions between members. After learning about the ingredients, we’ll go get the groceries needed from an open-air-market in the Medina and immerse ourselves in the traditions of Morocco’s cuisine. Heading back to our kitchen, we’ll clean and prepare the necessary amount of ingredients before starting to cook. After that your dishes are ready, you will get to enjoy your delicious meal and take all that knowledge with you back home, expanding your field of knowledge in food and providing you with a little more variety to your meals. This Fes cooking class is sure to be helpful in impressing your guests with the delicious Moroccan dishes that’ll surely make them happy and appreciate the efforts of a handmade North African meal.
