If you have an extra day in Marrakesh, and if you are interested in Moroccan cuisine, this is a highly recommended activity. Fatima starts from the spice market, where you can learn, and taste, so much that most tourists won't get a chance. Then we go to buy olives, oil, vegetables, and finally, the meat for the main dish that... More

Spending the day with Fatima was the best decision we made while in Marrakech. Truly an unique experience. Started the day going to the markets to pick out ingredients. When we arrived at Fatima's house a true gem of a garden made the setting for a cooking course we'll never forget. If we were to recommend one thing to do... More

Amazing experience, it was the best and favourite part of our holiday. Fatima was a fabulous host, very welcoming and friendly, and full of local knowledge, it really felt like we were discovering the little secrets of Marrakesh when we went to the different markets to collect the meat, vegetables, and spices. This was a full day of cooking and... More

Spending the day with Fatima is great! After finding all our ingredients in the souks we made and ate the best Moroccan food we had all week. Fatima has been a great source of information and inspiration, we learned not only about food but also about moroccan culture. And she even has some great tips for the Marrakech nightlife and...

We spontaneous joined Nezha in the morning of her class. We were 7 people in total and loved our time with her. As she had been on German TV (WDR) and as this was not the first class we took on trips, we knew how it would enrich our days in Morocco. Nezha took time to explain all spices at... More

For the first full day in Morocco we started with Fatima at a spice shop in the souk in Marrakech. What fun! We learned about all the tastes of Morocco and how to buy the needed spices should we wish to try our hand at cooking once we returned home. From the spice shop Fatima took us to shop for... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Spent some time in the spice market where she explained each one. Nice clean facilities. Lots of instructions. I really admire Fatima and think she is a strong character. Very direct and business like. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We had to postpone our original booking at the last minute due to getting food poisoning from a restaurant the night before, but Fatima was more than happy to accommodate us the following day, despite not having any other bookings for that day. We had a lovely relaxing day with Fatima exploring the markets and then cooking in her beautiful... More
