Marrakech Tagine Cookery Class With a Local

Learn to cook an authentic Moroccan meal at a 4-hour tagine cookery class in Marrakech. Following a hotel pick-up, start the day with a short Arabic lesson to learn the words for various ingredients, then go to the market to test your new language skills and buy fresh produce.

Stroll among the locals as you select the meat, vegetables, herbs, and spices that form the basis of Moroccan cuisine. Learn how spices are used, and about their historic importation to Morocco over thousands of years. Discover homegrown ingredients, such as saffron from Taliouine, mint and olives from Meknes, and oranges and lemons from Fez.

Then, during your hands-on cookery class, an expert chef will teach you how to make traditional dishes central to Moroccan meals. Among the most famous Moroccan dishes are couscous, pastila, tagine, tanjia, and harira. Although the last is a soup, it is considered a dish in itself, especially during Ramadan, and is often served with delicious local dates.

Once you have prepared your tagine meal, sit down to savor the delights of your cookery class in the delightful surroundings of a typical riad. Afterwards you will be transferred back to your hotel, armed with your own exclusive Moroccan recipes to try at home.

Additional Information

• Maximum group size is 12 people
• Morocco is a liberal Muslim country as many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves. However dress standards are more conservative than most western countries and you should dress accordingly. As a general rule, shoulders, knees, and cleavage should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended, as it will restrict your entry into buildings, including private homes, and is considered disrespectful. Long, light-colored, lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers, and skirts are respectful, cover your body, keep you cool in the heat, and protect you from the harsh sun

Einmaliges Erlebnis in toller Atmosphäre
Unsere Gastgeberin Karima war einfach unheimlich sympathisch und alle in ihrem Team sehr gastfreundlich. Man fühlte sich echt willkommen. Wir waren eine große Gruppe mit 14 Leuten aus der ganzen Welt. Es war ein großer Spaß und wir wurden rundherum gut betreut. Das Essen schmeckte wunderbar und der Besuch des Marktes mit einer Einheimischen war eine super Erfahrung.

Immer wieder gerne...
Pünktlich am Treffpunkt, freundliche Leitung über den heimischen Markt, gutes Englisch und Französisch, frische Produkte und klare Anweisungen, netter Empfang im Riad mit Tee und Keksen. Das selbstgemachte Essen (Vorspeise, Hauptgang und Nachtisch) war sehr gut und mehr als nur ausreichend. Auf Vegetarier wurde geachtet.

Overall really fun experience! At first it was a lot of waiting while getting the ingredients and waiting for them to be prepared, but later we had a lot of fun chopping and finishing up the tagine!

The pick up was about 25 minutes late, but it lasted longer to compensate. Was interesting to go around the souk to buy the ingredients and you have some fantastic photo opportunities whilst doing this. The setting in the riad is lovely and the food was damn good. A nice activity away from the chaos that is Marrakech.

I had expected more information on the food purchased re the taste of Morocco and the spices and herbs during the shopping process but we basically just followed the lady around the market. The cooking experience was pretty good but ovedrall just an average experience which was a real shame. We could easily have picked up the recipe from a cook book and followed the instructions...

Für das Geld nicht gut
Kochkurs ging 4 Stunden. Davon habe wir 1 1/2 Stunden warten verbracht. Entweder auf dem Markt oder in dem riad wo gekocht wurde. Die Gruppe war viel zu groß und die eingekauften Waren hatten einen Preis von einem Teilnehmer. Aus meiner Sicht nicht zu empfehlen. Ich habe schon deutlich bessere Kochkurse gehabt wo das Preis Leistungs Verhältnis gestimmt hat. Dieser nicht.

美味しいモロッコ
ミントティーの正しい入れ方、タジン料理のコツ、生きたニワトリの首を絞めてくれる鶏肉屋を始め市場での買い物・・・。すべてとても楽しく、そしてレストランで何度も食べたタジンより、自分たちで作ったタジンが一番おいしかった!レシピもくれて、モロカン・マンマの味を知る素晴らしい体験。

I give a 1 star rating because ths cook was unprofessional.
The experience was great. But the cook was very flirtatious with my husband, which made the entire group u comfortable. She was disrespectful and insensitive.

Sehr interessantes Erlebnis
Wir hatten das Glück, dass außer uns niemand angemeldet war, wir hatten also einen Privatkochkurs. Es war sehr interessant, wir wurden herzlich aufgenommen und es wurde individuell auf uns eingegangen. Beim Einkauf vorher waren wir etwas geschockt, als wir ein lebendes Huhn gekauft haben, das vor unseren Augen geschlachtet wurde. Dafür ist die Wertschätzung für die Tajine im Nachhinein umso größer gewesen. Eine gute Art um mal wieder aus unserem Supermarkt denken rauszukommen. Die Tajine hat wunderbar geschmeckt und wird zuhause auf jeden Fall nachgekocht!

Super !
Rhadija nous a appris à cuisiner une tajine ! Elle a pris le temps de répondre à toutes nos questions. Merci. J'espère apprendre le couscous la prochaine fois !

Terrific Tagine tour
This is a great way to experience Marrakech. It is like having a friend in the city who shows you around the market as well as gives you all the fantastic cooking tips you need to re create the food you’re experiencing! Highly recommended!⭐️

Goed
Kookles was leuk opgezet in een sfeervolle riad. We hebben gekookt in een kleine groep met heerlijk eten als resultaat. Het winkelen op de markt en leren van Arabische woorden had uitgebreider gekund. Er werd nauwelijks ingegaan op waarop je goede producten beoordeeld, wat ik wel had verwacht. Buitenal een goede en leuke workshop.
