Marrakech Tagine Cookery Class With a Local

Get ready for the ultimate tajine experience on this one of a kind tour in Marrakech. From market to plate, you’ll learn how to whip up a tajine from scratch, using ingredients from the famous Marrakech souks. The best part of it all? You get to devour your tajine after you’ve made it!

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

Der Kochkurs fand im Freien auf der Dachterasse eines Riads statt, was super war. Die Kochlehrerin war super organisiert und hat alles gut erklärt. Der Einkauf auf dem Markt war ebenfalls klasse, da sie uns instruiert hat wo wie was wir holen können und sollen. Das gekochte Rezept war ein marrokanischer Klassiker (Chicken Lemon Tanjin) und hat wunderbar geschmeckt. Absolut zu empfehlen der Kochkurs! Well done!

A real treat
I cannot praise Samae enough for her cheerful and joyful attitude as well as her professionalism in every aspect of our activity with her. We had a lot of fun for several hours and learned a great deal about Moroccan life, food and culture. Join her class and give yourself a real treat.

Grossartiges Erlebnis
Es wahr sehr interessant, ein Stück Kultur so hautnah erleben zu dürfen. Hervorzuheben ist insbesondere, dass man selber kocht und nicht nur zuschaut. So hat man am Ende des Kurses auch die Fähigkeit erlernt, eine Tajine zuzubereiten. Die Tajine war ausserordentlich lecker (besser als in gewissen Restaurants) und die Köchin war sehr nett. Es hat riesigen Spass gemacht. Sehr empfehlenswert!

Crowded but full of insight
Great little tour that began on the market to shop the different ingredients for the tagine. Great guide, she told us different things about the food and culture. But the negative was that we were 18 on the tour which is too many when we're shopping in the small markets and she couldn't quite "control" all of us. I mean, I understand why she brings so many along but when the price is this high, you kind of expect a more unique experience rather than the feeling of being herded around. Anyways, we made great food, had mint tea and a Moroccan dessert. Was fun to attend!

Der Beginn hat ein wenig holprig angefangen-zwei von 10 Leuten kamen zu spät und da es Samstag war(Freitags sind die Läden zu) mussten wir etwas warten bis die Händler ihre Ware verkaufen konnten. Nachdem wir alle Zutaten mit unserem Guide gekauft haben, folgten wir ihr zu einem Riad. Die Zubereitung des Gerichts hat wirklich sehr viel Spaß gemacht, war ausreichend und extrem lecker. Da die Marrokaner Fleisch lieben ist es eher keinem Vegetarier zu empfehlen. Das Hühnchen wurde frisch geschlachtet. Definitiv ein Highlight, wenn man sich für die marokkanische Essenskultur interessiert.

A great experience !
Our local guide went with us to the local market and afterwards to the beautiful Riad were we could share a wonderful experience with two other girls. This enriched our stay and inspired us to buy a Tajine and cook back home some delicious Marocain cuisine!

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.
