We had an amazing time at our cooking class. The Ruined Garden is beautiful, and the cooking class is totally outside. The ingredients were super fresh and we made a ton of food, more than enough for the three of us!

Friendly staff and wonderful experience to embrace in the culture of their bread making, then taking it to a bakery not far away to be baked. Generous quantities were made, that we could then share with the village of Sefrou. Wonderful experience.
