Cook a feast of regional foods with a small-group Marrakech cooking class that includes lunch in a traditional Moroccan home. Since you’ll go all the way from market-fresh ingredients to a finished meal, this cooking class is a great way to learn techniques and recipes that you can easily recreate in your home kitchen.
  • Visit the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa market to shop for ingredients and spices
  • Prepare a traditional Moroccan dish you can recreate at home
  • Chance to experience Moroccan hospitality in a local house
  • Bring home recipes: the class includes a souvenir collection
What to Expect
Join a guide at Jemaa el-Fnaa and then head into the historic medina to shop for the day’s ingredients. Browse stalls selling meat and vegetables as well as locally grown olives, mint, saffron, and citrus fruit, learning the Arabic words for key ingredients as you shop. Next, visit a traditional Moroccan home to meet the chef and start cooking. Prepare a main, such as tagine or tangia, both baked dishes of couscous with vegetables and meat; harira, a hearty soup served with dates; or pastila, an apple-based dessert. When the meal is ready, sit down in the courtyard to share the feast with your fellow cooks and travelers. At the end of the leisurely lunch, return to Jemaa el-Fnaa, where you can shop for spices to bring home, or just soak up the bustling atmosphere of the city’s most popular square.

It was a great moment, the most favorite part is when our guide Sanae showed us how to make tea and when shopping at the traditional market, but generally was great experienced, love the dessert as well. Thank you Sanae for shared the locals experienced.
