Excellent Day! I thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class and learned much about spices, oils, traditional Moroccan cooking, as well as, the culture and history of the region and people. The hosts were charming, funny, attentive and accommodating. By far this was the best well worth the money and time and I would recommend it to everyone. A truly memorable experience.
Michel and Ilman are a wonderful team. Michel's conversation and illuminating workshop on spices to be used in the cooking is very amusing and valueable, and Ilman is a professional chef and a wonderful teacher. The facility is large and lovely and they provide door to door pickup. The other people in our group were pleasant, the food we prepared was delicious, and it was a lovely day in our Marrakech journey. The next day, at the spice market, I used so much of what Michel had taught me.
This course is an absolute must for anyone traveling to Marrakech! Michel and Ilhame were so friendly that it didn't even feel like a class, but more like hanging out with friends and cooking lunch together. We learned so much! Ilhame really goes in depth into teaching us every technique and Michel teaches us about why each spice or ingredient is important. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Marrakech!! If we go back again, I'd definitely sign up for the couscous course to continue our Moroccan cooking adventure! O and their spices, olive oil, and aragan oil were so cheap that we picked up a bunch of them for our trip back to the U.S. haha. When you go, you absolutely have to try the olive oil! They press it themselves from the olives in their back yard! It's AMAZING!
The Cooking Class was such an amazing experience and gave my group and I a deeper sense of Moroccan culture! Both the host and cook were pleasant and knowledgeable! A very hands on experience at a comfortable pace!
I loved this activity. The food that we cooked was amazing and I feel comfortable to try most of the dishes at home. I enjoyed the discussion on spices and olive/aragan oil and how to discuss fakes in the markets. The couple teaching the class was fun and funny and made the entire experience enjoyable.
Such an amazing experience. Both the host/chef were pleasant and knowledgeable! Very hands on yet a comfortable pace. The meals were delicious and through interacting with the host and chef my group and I learned about the history of spices as well as the Moroccan culture!
