We have just returned home after a fabulous 5 days 'Cooking at Riad Merdoudi' . We booked through an agent who specialises in gourmet holidays and our expectations were surpassed day after day. The riad is glorious, renovated with such an eye for detail and the cooking classes are unforgettable. Edwina, an Australian with such contagious and humerous passion for food and her lovely Moroccan husband, Abdellatif made our cooking with them, pure joy. Each morning WE chose what we wanted to cook for our evening's feast..the sky was the limit! We then had an Arabic lesson with Abdellatif before going into the spice and vegetable souks to shop with our little suede covered books crammed with seemingly impossible words to offer the stall holders. We always came home with more than was on the list as Edwina would see us eyeing something delicious and plop it into our basket, promising divine things to do with it once home and standing at our huge marble topped prepping table! Her promises were ALWAYS kept! We butterflied sardines and walked them to the community oven, we were totally immersed in all that was to be prepared, more of the detail that is Riad Merdoudi! We went for the day with Abdellatif to 'cook in a village kitchen' and hour or so away from Marrakech..we rode mules into the earth built village carrying with us the lamb and vegetables we had purchased in the valley, this time in Berber..we baked bread in an earth oven untouched by time, we assembled our tajines and rolled the couscous, over and over again, we walked for a few hours to a waterfall while the fire wasleft to slowly cook what we had prepared was and we dined with the muleman's family who had led us to his home..Abdellatif with such feeling for his country, translating and telling the stories..it was the most magical day.
As part of the cooking holiday, we had a shopping extravaganza. Edwina led us to what she described as 'hidden places, holding hearts' desires' and she was right! We would never had found them on our own!

This intimate little hotel of four gorgeous guest rooms with the best roof terrace and lovely, lovely sitting areas is a gem, a REAL gem and Edwina and Abdellatif, could not have done it better!

Room Tip: Die Zimmer sind nur zusammen mit den angebotenen Kochkursen zu buchen, ein Gesamterlebnis also.
