Cookery class for all

I can't cook to save my life and my partner is a dab hand in the kitchen but our relative abilities didn't matter a jot. We started off by being 20 minutes late due to a charlatan taxi driver but to our surprise they waited for us before starting the class which we appreciated. It began with a... read more

We found this restraunt by chance while we were looking for pharmacy. The food was excellent and the desert was very good. Most important the price . No one can match it. Before we left, we bought some homemade sweets from inside the shop.

Since I first visit Morocco, I had a desire to learn how to prepare Tajin. When selecting the cooking course I watched mainly to the fact that it doesn't take too long, I'm on vacation after all :) The course in ATC was entertaining, informative, and can boast that girls taught me how to make the best Beef Tajin with...

We made a reservation for lunch, went there and was told the restaurant is full inside and we need to take lunch outside in burning 43 degrees!!! The lady was unprofessional and we felt unwelcome. Not returning again.

This lovely restaurant is located in the new city in Marrakech. They serve lunch daily, and also do dinner for large groups by reservation. It was some of the best food we had in Marrakech, and the center is doing a great thing for many women. I would encourage everyone to have at least one lunch here while in Marrakech.
