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.
Loved shopping for our ingredients and then preparing chicken tagine. Very well organized and a lovely day.
Oh my word! What an amazing experience with Karima. Recipe, lessons, fantastic food. Highly recommended!
Great experience! We got to shop in the local market for our ingredients and then head to the riad to learn to cook a chicken tagine and Moroccan salad. Karima was a great guide! Explain alot about the culture and food. Definitely recommend to all the foodies out there.
Amazing time at the cooking class. The ladies are knowledgeable and made cooking a lot of fun. The trip to the medina, to buy the food to come ok, was very interesting. Highly highly HIGHLY recommend this cooking class.
Had a wonderful time. Both our guide Sana and cook Karima were great. This experience comes highly recommended.
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
highlight of our 5 day stay in marrakech was this tour --dont miss it
Karima was fantastic, the cooking was fun and very intimate, and it was a real eye opening experience
Karima our host was perfect. She told us the Arabic words for all the ingredients she purchased from the souk. The chickens were alive when she bought them !! We then went to her family Riad to cook a tagine each, and a Moroccan salad to go with it. She also showed us how to make traditional mint tea. While the tangines were cooking over the charcoal, we relaxed up on the roof terrace where Karima served us tea/coffee and biscuits. There were 4 of us on this day 2 couples, and we all got on very well. Then came the great tasting - it was all delicious food. We had a great morning, with lovely people, and great fresh Moroccan food. This class is perfect for both good home cooks, and novices. Nothing too complicated and all well instructed. Thank you Karima
My wife and I were met at the appointed place by Kamimcl may be misspelled We strolled through the souk and food market where we saw and tasted local foods. We purchased our products to cook later. We the walked to our host rial where we sat around a table and following instructions we prepared our products fo the tagine. It was cooked over charcoal while we prepared and ate a salad. This was an overall great experience and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
This was fun, first we buy the groceries at the local market and then we cooked our own Tajine mael at Karima's house. It was a very nice experience and we loved Karima and her family. When you go to Marrakech you must do a cooking class!!!!!
What a wonderful way to learn how to cook a proper Moroccan tagine, than in the beautiful traditional house of a local family.
We booked a the cookery trip via the website Viator, who in turn use a local business.
Its a must-do experience in Marrakesh!
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our local guide Karima picked us up outside Café Paris in the chaotic Djemaa El Fna far right hand side of the square, and took us through the labyrinth of alleys and souks, where we stopped en route to her family home to purchase all the ingredients needed to each make our own lemon chicken tagine. The stops included a spice shop, mint stall, vegetable stall, olive shack and not for the faint hearted Westerner the live chicken counter. Dont worry, after she picked the ones required, and had them weighed we didnt stick around to see our fresh chicken prepared. You have to appreciate its a way of life, and one we are very ignorant to, as we are great at disconnecting such thoughts, where we do our weekly shop in Asda!
We stepped from the madding streets of Marrakesh into this beautiful tranquil home, and were made so welcome by the host family. Of course you have the obligatory welcome Mint Tea, and then set to work on making your own tagine traditionally over coals, where Karima taught us, with the assistance of her sister, and mother. The result was by far the best tagine we ate during our stay and we werent biased as we made it!.
What a lovely family-ran business, it was both a privilege and the highlight of our holiday to meet Karima and her family and to cook the native dish synonymous with Morocco.
My girlfriend and I were greeted by our cooking teacher infront of a cafe in the Medina (AMAZING WOMAN!) and took us to the souks to shop for our ingredients. We were taken to her Riad to learn the amazing tagine recipe. I strongly suggest this to couples of all ages, adventurous eaters, groups
Karima was amazing. Great class in her Riad after shopping at the Souk. BRILLIANT experience. Food was divine and it was perfect in every way from the setting, the food, preparation, follow up from Karima by email with recipes to the warmth, hospitality and sense of community. A MUST DO TOUR.
The tour guide Karima was extremely good. The riad where she taught me to cook was very nice. The instructions were good and the food delicious
. It was a very enjoyable experience!
This was truly a GREAT time! Having to buy the ingredients, including a live chicken, first we got to experience the market. We also learned some Arabic words along the way. Then on to Karima's home. We were shown how to make traditional mint tea, then had hands on experience making our own tagines. The food was AMAZING! If you like to cook, or even if you don't this was fun, educational and DELICIOUS, thank you Karima for a delightful morning!!

Karima was the 'guide' and was amazing. She took extra time to spend with us in the souks and get to know us. Such a unique travel experience and had time for lots of pictures. The food was also DELICIOUS!
It was a great way to break into Morocco. Learning the Arabic proved to be very useful. It was fun to get to the Market before all the craziness hits later in the day. Our guide Karima was excellent!! The food was great and so easy to prepare we can easily replicate a great Moroccan meal at home.

I spent a wounderful time in this tour. I really enjoyed walking in the souks chosing and buying vegetables, spices and different ingredients for my own tagine with the teacher, who was pacient, kind and helpful.
The riad, where the class took place, is so cute. I felt well being in that place.
The food was amazing, much better than in the restaurants.
For sure I'm gonna use the tagine at home. And I guess, it'll became my best friend in the kitchen.
