We had a great tour with Fatima for three of us. It was amazing to see where our ingredients come from and how tasty food we can prepare under careful eye of our teacher. Would recommend to everyone.

Most delicious tagine in Morocco! The guide Sanaa is such a delightful, enthusiastic person. From the moment we met her, she was upbeat and eager to share her culture. Navigating the souks to pick the fresh ingredients is what sets this class apart--you get to talk to the local vendors and learn the names of the foods in Arabic--also great to see where your food is coming from. I would highly recommend this cooking class if you like Moroccan food and are interested in getting an inside view on how its prepared.

Great experience from getting food ingredients to learning to make a Chicken Tagine. The home we cooked in also had wifi. Even had a demonstration of how to prepare and pour mint tea.

Had such a great time with the cooking class!!! It ended up just being two of us with the instructor. You start by going through the Medina/market to get all fresh ingredients. Buying ingredients from the vendors is fun as they are happy to meet new people. You're asked ahead of time what you prefer to cook as well so there's options. Once we got to the Riad where we'd be prepping the meal Karima, our instructor, welcomes us with mint tea. From there we basically help prep the meal and she assists with the cooking of it. When we're ready to eat she has the table all set for you. Karima was truly the sweetest person and so fun to cook with!!! The day after the class I was running through the Medina to meet for another tour and I heard my name. Kind of surprised to hear two people yelling my name after only being in Marrakech for two days I was a bit confused. I look back and it was Karima and the gentleman from the produce stand. Both had huge smiles on their face as I turned back to say hello. That was the highlight of my day!

Fantastic morning shopping in the locals market then learning how to prepare and cook Tagine in a beautiful riad. Our host could not have been any better. We will remember this for a very long time

Very nice experience. First day in Marrakesh for us so waking around the souks shopping for the ingredient was an experience. Felt safe at all times and the final product (the tagine) was delicious.
Totally recommended.

Great experience! Had a great time. Sara is great. She is very friendly, helpful, and knows how to make a great tangine. I definitely recommend this day trip. I felt it was a bit pricey when I book it, but it was probably the best day trip I booked for my trip. Well worth it.

Karima our host was lovely. We visited her local suppliers in the souks and sourced our ingredients and then she made us very welcome at her riad. It was a very hands on experience. We were shown how to make Moroccan tea, vege couscous, a Moroccan salad and two types of tagine. There were lots of laughs and it was very informal.

This was a fabulous tour and cookjng class. Sara was my delightful companion guide and teacher who was patient, caring, friendly, warm and an excellent ambassador for her country. We found the best places to buy fresh food and had an amazing eye opening tour through the souks. Sara and I did the cooking in a lovely kitchen in a riad and we spent a very relaxing and informative time cooking and eating our tagine. Sara has a natural ability to get along with people and to make them feel comfortable while encouraging me to prepare food the Marrocan way. I learnt so much from her but most importantly I take her warmth and hospitality home in my heart. A wonderful experience which I feel privileged to have had. Thank you, Sara.

The chicken tagine was one of our favorite dishes we had on our trip. We also had so much fun shopping like a local. So glad we did it!!

Loved this cooking experience. We went to buy fresh food from souks and when I say fresh; well the chicken saw me before we ate it. Chef taught all steps to make Morracan salad and learned to make Morracan chicken tangine. Had oranges with honey and cinnamon. Awesome time cooking with a great chef.

We really enjoyed this tour. I hate cooking but gave it to my friend as a gift. It was so much fun! Our guide took us to the Souq and explained everything we needed while we got a feeling for the real Morocco. The Tagine we made was the best we had on the whole holiday. I would recommend everyone to spend their morning on this tour!

Buying the ingredients for making a tagine was a great experience walking though the souk and watching our chef negotiate the purchase of vegetables and the fresh chicken alive until we bought it. Then back to a riad where the six of us were instructed in cutting and and preparing the tagine. Our instructor spoke excellent English and was able to improvise a request for a vegetarian tagine after we had finished shopping. The tagine took time to cook and while it did we prepared a warm Moroccan salad. The only criticism of the day is that the knives we used for preparing the tagine ingredients desperately need sharpening. Nice and different experience.

From the beginning it was awesome. Senna met us at Cafe de France as planned, took us shopping for the ingredients we needed then back to the riad where Karima awaited us. There were only four of us which was nice. We had a mint tea demostration, then it was time to get our hands dirty. Got yo make a Moroccan salad and a chicken, olive and lemon tagine, it was so much fun! Totally recommend this experience.

Really enjoyed this cooking excursion. Our tour guide was very friendly and made us feel really welcome. I took my 10 year old daughter and although we are vegetarian and vegan this wasn and #39;t a problem. We had a great time and cooked some lovely Moroccon food.

Absolutely CANNOT miss this one. If you love to cook and/or eat this tour is for you. By far the best tagine we ate on our 5 day trip and we helped cook it! The tour guide was so sweet and very knowledgable about the area and what ingredients to get.

Would recommend this to anyone, had a thoroughly enjoyable time and our hosts were fabulous. Really enjoyed the experience of shopping in the Souks and cooking our own chicken tagine which tasted delicious, we have now managed to recreate this dish at home and it turned out great
