Description

Learn to cook an authentic Moroccan meal in the heart of Marrakech under the tutelage of an experienced chef. Identify a variety of Moroccan spices, and then use them to prepare a sumptuous meal. At the end, enjoy your dish with your host in a gorgeous Moroccan farmhouse setting.

Transfer from your hotel to a farmhouse set between rows of orange, lemon, and olive trees. Your host, a Parisian transplant now living in Morocco, greets you with cooling traditional mint tea or coffee and shows you around the scenic estate. Before you begin cooking, sit down at a table in front of 20 bowls of spices and try to guess what they are based on their smell. Your chef teaches you how to identify the unique flavours just by their aroma.

Next, it's time to get cooking. Following careful instructions, learn how to prepare and cook the ingredients, seasoning them to perfection with your newly acquired knowledge of spice. Based on the day of the week, you'll make recipes like lamb tagine with prunes, couscous with vegetables, or beef tagine with peas and artichoke. Once your dish is complete, taste the fruits of your labour at the table with your chef, and depart your lesson with new recipes in hand.

Great day out. It's listed as a half day but it is more like a 3/4 day and is super value for the price. As a couple We opted to go for a meat a veggie option but preferred the meat dish. The sauce was a bit lacking in substance with the veggie dish. Good to talk with fellow travellers from Iceland Norway and the USA. Michel was very entertaining. Would recommend highly
