Overview

The Sanssouci cooking school is available to resident guests and to non-resident guests on an advanced reservation basis. The cooking classes are conducted at a number of venues in Marrakech. Open since 2001, and winner of "Best Moroccan Cooking School 2011", we have taught tens of thousands of visitors the art of Moroccan cooking. Regardless of location cooking classes follow the same format, have the same team of teachers, and same set up. With a team of 5 dadas, traditional Moroccan chefs, an executive Moroccan chef, a consultant chef who has worked in one of the leading kitchens of the world, and the author of a Moroccan cookbook on our team, we are well placed to teach all aspects of Moroccan cooking. We do private classes only, so the content of the class and its format can vary. Class sizes have varied from between 1 person and up to 20 and can be in duration from one hour to multi-day, with the most popular format a half-day class. Our classes are very hands on, as we believe that you will learn by doing, tasting as you go, and repeating so that it is you who makes each dish...Sanssouci Cooking School has acted as food consultant to Yotam Ottolenghi's Mediterannean Feasts, The Hairy Bikers, Shane Dalia's Spice Journey's, and others. We have also worked with Paula Wolfert on the relaunch of her seminal work on Moroccan, Food, Culture, and Cooking--possibly the most important work in English on Moroccan food and food culture. We also supported the authors of beautiful book Colours of Maroc. We are fanatic about fresh, seasonal cooking, and making everything from scratch. Our classes are completely hands-on, involving guests in the preparation of each dish and imparting practical knowledge.All instruction is private--we do not do group classes unless it is a group that is travelling together and want to do their class together. We have a variety of typical formats, but will also create bespoke classes. The classes are suitable for everyone from beginners to professional chefs, and indeed we have even had multi-day classes with professional chefs designed to help them reformulate their own menus to include Moroccan dishes. Classes are held daily at a number of locations around Marrakech. The Dar Les Cigognes cookbook is available on Amazon UK and US and Riad Kaiss and Dar Les Cigognes both feature in Paula Wolfert's seminal new work The Food of Morocco as well as in Colour of Maroc, the new book on Moroccan food.
