At the half-day classes, one learns the secrets of Moroccan cuisine, considered the most refined on the African continent. The workshops are run by a dada (traditional Moroccan chef), a translator (French/English), and include a visit to a nearby spice market and communal bread oven. After the workshop, during which every participant has worked alongside the dada at his or her own workstation, one dines on the delicious meal that's been prepared. The cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe have been praised by the leading international travel and food press, including The New York Times Sunday Travel Section, Travel + Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Saveurs, and Virtuoso Life. « less

For my wife's 30th birthday we spent the day learning how to make a traditional Moroccan tagine in a beautiful setting. The staff were fun, friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience very memorable. Needles to say the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys food and would like to get a flavour of Moroccan... More

A fantastic experience with a great group of just 9 of us. We learnt a lot, had lots of laughs, and enjoyed eating our meal together. Really good kitchen area in a beautiful setting. Can highly recommend doing this.

I would highly recommend this activity to anyone who is looking for a memorable introduction to Moroccan cuisine and traditions. There was more to the day than simply learning how to create delicious chicken tagine, tomato roses or aubergine and pepper salads. The facilities were spacious, stylish and well equipped. The team led by Wafaa were efficient and professional, yet... More

Took our boys, ages, 11 and 13 to this class and we all had a wonderful time!! Once you arrive at the hotel, they take you to the 'country club' location that is a beauttufl garden with the cooking facitlies on-site. The facitilies were very professional and the staff was wonderful. The meals were very tasty and complex enough to... More

My husband and I did the cooking class when we stayed in Marrakech in mid February. The cooking workshop at La Maison Arabe was seriously the best thing we did in Marrakech - the setting was just stunning, set within a beautiful, peaceful garden. Our host and the Dada (cook) were super friendly and helpful (and funny). To top it... More

If you have any interest in cooking whatsoever or just want to make your own Moroccan meal, this class is an absolute must. The staff is so warm it feels as if they are inviting you into their own kitchen. The workshop takes place on a quiet country club that is so peaceful, and a vibrant kitchen features more than...

I am naturally cynical and was expecting a fairly pedestrian affair for what seemed quite a lot of money (600 dhiram per person). It turned out to be a wonderful venue set in the peaceful gardens of the Maison Arabe country club with an amazing kitchen setup individual cook stations for about 20. Our 14 and 9 year old girls...

This was a top notch class as it was a lot of fun and very informative. You are taught a lot in a short time. They make learning very easy and you will leave confident in cooking some basic but very tasty Moroccan meals. Enjoying your final product in the beautiful courtyard was a perfect end to a great day.

Gifted the course as a birthday present, I went with Mari to the Maison Arabe and took a course on Moroccan cooking. Led by Mohammed Nahir, we learnt much about couscous, spices and other ingredients in traditional Moroccan cuisine. A visit to a nearby spice shop helped us to visualize and usually by smell determine which spice was which. Before... More

We booked a cooking class for 9 of us, and were all pleased with the class! As well as learning to cook, you are given a background of their food (principles and ingredients of Morrocon food). You even get a tour of the local bakery! The class itself is very professional as they have a workstation kitted out with screens... More
