Meet your local host Tarik at his apartment and walk together to the open neighborhood market where locals shop every day. Explore regional spices, fruits and vegetables used in Moroccan cooking as you discuss the menu for the day and purchase a few ingredients that you will later use during your cooking lesson. After the tour, join Tarik in his kitchen and learn to cook a traditional Moroccan meal from recipes that he learned from his mother. Your hands-on cooking class will last about two hours, and you will cook 2-3 dishes, such as a tajine (a Maghrebi dish which is named after the earthenware pot in which it is cooked) or pastilla (a traditional sweet and savory pie) and zalouk (an eggplant and tomato salad), from scratch. Acquire Moroccan cooking tricks and techniques, before you sit down at the table to share the delicious meal you helped prepare with Tarik.
