After looking at a number of options for a cooking class, a friend and I settled on HOF based on a recommendation from our Riad and having seen it a number of times walking around the Medina. This was the highlight of our trip. The half day class we did was the complete experience starting with discussing the menu over an amazing cup of coffee to learning our 'shopping arabic' and picking out the perfect produce at the market and finally enjoying the multitude of dishes we made.
Edwina and Taufik were excellent hosts providing great instruction with a sense of humour. I appreciated Edwina's style and that we wrote our own recipes. Generally its nice to work in pairs so one writes, while the other does the prep. The clean up and set up is taken care of by the hosts/staff as well which allows you to focus on the cooking and jotting the recipes. They were also very accommodating and allowed our friend, who didn't participate in the class, join the group for lunch for a reasonable fee.
I highly recommend going with the sardines and carrot jam. Really all the dishes were excellent and some of the best food we had in Morocco. My friends, who generally don't eat meat, made an exception so they could enjoy the lamb and chicken tajine.
