These particular tours offer cooking lessons and workshops held in a purpose-built teaching kitchen in a small house, riad or just in the outdoors depending on our itinerary. Each session is preceded by a brief stop where participants, accompanied by the cook or the tour guide, are invited out on shopping expeditions to the local produce market. Once in the place they will get an introduction into the real Moroccan cuisine and the dishes being prepared.
If your ideal way to visit Morocco is a combination of cookery lessons, cultural and adventurous outings contact us since we made forays into unique places where you can both make your own and taste the finest of the real Morocco and the finest of its cuisine.
