Cooking lesson in Marrakech
La Maison Arabe has a well established restaurant that opened in 1940 and its experienced chefs host cooking workshops. Have a go at making your own lemon chicken tagine and learn about traditional cooking methods using authentic Moroccan spices.
Cooking classes at La Maison Arabe are conducted by a dada, a traditional Moroccan cook, in small groups of 8-10 people, and with a translator. Guests will learn to make traditional dishes such as pastries, tagines and couscous salads, all using locally sourced spices and meats. As well as the classic Moroccan recipes, your chef will teach you about Moroccan culture and its relevance to the country’s unique cuisine. During the workshop, you will visit a spice shop and communal bakery, and learn traditional cooking methods. Within the gardens, under the shade of the fig and olive trees, you can then enjoy the food that you have created.
