Half-Day Morrocan Cookery Class in Marrakech
- Uncover the secrets of Moroccan cooking under the expert tuition of a professional cook
- Learn how to buy, store, and combine spices
- Prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in a lovely rural setting
Moroccan cuisine is among the most exquisite in the world and on your Marrakech vacation you will probably have enjoyed some delicious tagines, caught the rich aroma of multiple spices, and discovered fantastic flavorings in salads and sides. Now, you can take it a step further and learn how to cook these delectable dishes to try out when you get home.
The excursion offers a complete immersion in Moroccan home cooking. In a lovely countryside setting, you will learn how to cook a traditional meal and how to mix fabulous Moroccan drinks. At the end of the day, you will get to taste the fruits of your labor.
After a morning pick-up from your chosen Marrakech location, you will be driven to the farm a few miles from the city center. Here the delightful Moroccan cook, Nezha, will teach you all you need to know. The main meal in her cookery program changes according to the day of the week, but she will introduce you to an array of aromas and equipment, such as the conical pots that are used to prepare traditional tagines.
The easy-to-follow course, on specially prepared and individual workstations, will be fun and educational. After you have prepared your meal, including breads, salads and desserts, it is time to enjoy the results on the terrace, set among olive, lemon and orange groves. If the weather is too hot, you can relax in the comfort of the air-conditioned indoor dining area.
