Description: The world-renowned cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe are open to hotel...
The world-renowned cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe are open to hotel guests and those staying elsewhere in Marrakech. 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.

My husband and our 4 adult children enjoyed a wonderful morning at the workshop, we where picked up from our hotel and taken to the workshop just outside Marrakech. The kitchen was awesome! Very modern. We cooked and learnt just enough for it to be interesting and informative without being a task and tiresome. And at the end they gave... More

For me, this tagine cooking class was a welcome break from being around Moroccan men, for all the assistants and cooks were female and the main guide spoke excellent English and, unlike most Moroccan men I'd had as "guides" and "drivers," the female staff at this cooking school were all very, very cooperative and sensitive to my interests. I wondered... More

The setting was super, located at a golf resort in the outskirts of Marrakesh. We met at the riad La Maison Arabe and were transferred to the resort in mini buses. The host was very informative and friendly. The kitchen was very modern and perfectly set up and the lesson very well prepared and everything well organized. We really loved... More

I have taken many cooking classes around the world and I must say this was one of the best. While you wait at the gorgeous hotel, you are served tea and cookies. The vans actually leave at 10 (being on time is surprising in Morocco) and take you to their country club. Here they have a traditional oven where you... More

We were picked up at our hotel and ferried to La Maison Arabe (hotel), and then served mint tea and petit fours whilst we waited for our fellow cooks. We were then whisked off to another venue, sadly with little direction as what was happening, and then the minibus pulled up to a rather inauspicious door. When it was opened,... More

I often get bored after a couple of days sitting by the pool and take myself off to a local cookery school. However, nothing had prepared me for the amazing setting and high quality of the bespoke kitchen - with individual work stations and video link so you can follow what the chef is doing step by step. I went... More

La Maison Arabe run a tremendous cooking class. We were in the 10am class and were transported to their second premises on the outskirts of town. The gardens were laden with fresh herbs and it was wonderfully serene. We started off with a quick overview of food in Morocco and important ingredients, before making flat breads in the large outdoor... More

We loved Morocco and this Cooking Workshop at La Maison Arabe was one of the highlights of our trip. We were very fortunate to have been taught by Mr. Mohammed NAHIR and his staff, in a very relaxed atmosphere showing us step by step the wonders of Moroccan Cuisine. After a private shuttle bus ride, we were taken to a... More
