At the entrance of the old medina, in a former almond warehouse, l'Atelier Madada welcomes you under its stone arches. By small groups (8 persons maximum) and supervised by a professional team (a cook and a trilingual presenter) our hosts discover the secrets of Moroccan gastronomy and are initiated into the delights of one of the best cuisine in the world. In a friendly and casual atmosphere, those half-day workshops teach each participant how to prepare a full traditional meal that one can then easily reproduce at home.

We booked this cooking class just to get a bit into the moroccan cuisine, the fact is, we learned not only to cook a delicious Tagine but also a lot about the culture and the mentality of Moroccan. 100% recommended!

Took part in a half day cooking course on using a tagine. Alison and Muna were very welcoming and informative. The walk to the spice market was very interesting, especially with the local knowledge that Alison has. We really had a fun time, thanks.
