We didn't stay at Ryad Alya (as we had already booked other accommodations) but it's a beautiful place with fascinating architecture and unique rooms. We came to Ryad Alya for a cooking class on the recommendation of our host. It was a really great experience and the culinary highlight of a month-long trip! Hassnae walked us through the souks to pick out all our meats, vegetables, and spices, teaching us about the various ingredients as well as Moroccan culture. When we returned to the riad, we met the chefs and learned from them how to make fabulous Moroccan dishes (4 types of cooked salads, harira soup, and lamb tajine). We spent the afternoon cooking with Hassnae and our two lovely & knowledgeable chefs (Amina and Fatima), and had a great time making delicious food (and tasting it once it was done!). The ladies were all so patient and so fun to work with! In the evening, we returned to the riad and got to enjoy the food we made on the rooftop, overlooking the medina, listening to live music. What a fantastic day and an incredible dinner (if I may say so myself)! Can't recommend it highly enough!
