In mid- September, I took a group of 11 people to do a special Moroccan cooking class at the gorgeous Riad ZamZam! The owner, Emma arranged a fantastic class and everything was prepped and beautifully laid out, ready for our eager hands to start learning how to prepare Moroccan fare. Before we started, we asked Emma to take us on a tour of her Riad, which she renovated and designed with her husband. It was breath-taking in decor and the lighting was especially spectacular. Our group had a wonderful time cooking and Emma's staff were so helpful and gracious. She had mint tea and pastries waiting for us before we even started.
I had arranged a menu with Emma before by email since there were some Vegetarians with us. We made a slew of Moroccan salads (a potato, an eggplant and spiced carrots), Chicken tagine with oranges, Veggie tagines and it was especially fun to make the cheese pastry called a Briouatte. Once we were finished preparing the food, the staff cooked it and then we they served us our food like kings and queens on her rooftop terrace. Seriously, our food was some of the best we ate in all of Marrakech!
I would definitely recommend coming to Riad Zamzam for a cooking class and of course, the Riad is beautiful too. All and all, a wonderful experience and I would bring another group there in a heartbeat. It was a highlight in our week! Thanks Emma!
