Experience Morocco: Visit a Souk and Cook Moroccan Food in Marrakech
From USD 58.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
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.
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.

Actually better than expected!

Everything was thoroughly organized -- not in an unpleasant, regimented way, but just in a good way. We were met on time. The instructor was pleasant, informative and attentive to the individual needs of each participant. The souk experience was fine (though be aware that...More

Best cooking class ever!

We had a lovely day with Karima, starting with a visit to the market to buy ingredients, and then preparing the food together. Karima was very clear in all of her instructions, providing insights both culinary and cultural into the processes. And she was fun!...More

Jimgiger is correct. However, in our experience, multiple groups meet there, at the same time, so it is important to also look for the "Urban Adventures" sign that the guide will have. Our guide was a couple of minutes late... More
