Amazing experience. I want to do a cooking class in every foreign country I go to - and I hope they are all like this. My wife and I learned so much. Getting to go to the souks first to buy all our stuff was so much fun and so helpful and educational. Gemma was the perfect host. It was... More

The difference between this cooking course and many others, is that Gemma starts you in the market. She has her list of ingredients and bags, and leads you to the different markets to purchase each of the ingredients. She has a great relationship with a lot of the shopkeepers who are excited to chat with us and educate us on... More

An fun and informative day in the market and in the kitchen with Gemma. We started in the market buying all the ingredients for our recipes for the day (don't forget - the uglier the lemons, the better) - if you want a true Moroccan cooking experience then you should definitely start by shopping for the ingredients, and it was...

Really fantastic day out with my boyfriend. I cook a lot and thought the recipes we perfect for a novice or experienced cook. Starts in the morning with the group meeting in the square. The fantastic Gemma leads you around the souk to the local food vendors in a fun and educational venture. You then go back to her lovely... More

We had a fantastic time in Marrakech and this was one of the most memorable bits. From buying the ingredients to learning how to cook with them we found it all interesting , relaxed and very tasty.

It was a really enjoyable day. After meeting in the main square Gemma took us to the souks to buy the ingredients. It was really worthwhile experience and we learnt a lot especially about the spices and their medicinal uses and the trip to the bakery was fun. We then went to Gemma's house where we cooked up 7 different... More

A great experience and mini adventure, starting with the market trip. I met Gemma outside the café with a group that included a couple from Portugal and a lovely group of ladies from Florida and Alaska! Gemma was really fantastic and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. You will find out about some of the secrets of the Souks which you would... More

Myself my husband and our 13 year old daughter went on this course in April 2015, when I booked I felt quite guilty as I was using a day of my families holiday doing something I want to do instead of riding the water slides in our hotel / water park but it ended up being our daughters highlight !!...

If you are interested in food and finding out how the locals live in Marrakesh, then this is for you! If you do it at the start of your trip you will also get some great tips on where to eat for the rest of your visit. It was the best things we did in Marrakesh. We loved it!

Really enjoyed this experience, starting with the market trip. It was great to get to meet some of Gemma's favorite vendors, gather our ingredients, and end up at her kitchen to make so many wonderful dishes. We had a fun and enthusiastic group, and we chopped our way to a fabulous lunch of Moroccan salads, two tajines, and cookies that... More
