All classes are conducted in English-language and include preparation of at least two mouth-watering Moroccan dishes such as briouat, pastilla and a spicy cooked salad plus a fish, chicken, beef or lamb tagine. Roast rabbit in Fassia mustard sauce is a real favourite as are Fatim-Zahra’s barbecued brochettes. Royal couscous is always prepared on Fridays, the traditional day for eating couscous in Morocco. Every day Marrakech Cooking School’s ‘Dada’ demonstrates how to prepare couscous to perfection. All guests will try their hand at making dough and baking bread the Moroccan way! Menus change on a daily basis and our small group size guarantees a more personalised experience.
