We booked the cooking class direct with the riad which was easy, they answered our queries promptly and were happy to tailor our class to our requirements and level of cooking ability.
We arrived at the riad and talked through what we were going to do with Pierre. He then took us on a 30 minute walk through the local markets explaining produce on display, way of life etc. At no point were we expected or pressurised to buy anything. All market stalls we stopped at were friendly and at the last one offered us mint tea.
Once back at the riad we were left with the chef who would be teaching us. She spoke Arabic and French but if we were stuck on any communication the other staff could speak English so we didn't have any problems.
We cooked everything from scratch, the chef showing us how to do things and letting us also do it so this was a hands on cooking class. We could also take notes as we went along so that we could keep.
After we had cooked everything we ate our meal in a room they had set up for us. The food was delicious and abundant.
This was a great few hours to learn how to cook a new cuisine. We would definitely recommend this riad for a cooking class as they will accommodate your request and was good value for money. We will be trying the recipes at home.
