We were eager to take a cooking class while in morocco and chanced upon the cooking class offered by Janane Tamsna. It was one of our best experiences while in Morocco. The cooking group itself was small- it was my husband and I and two other families of 4.. So a total of 10!
The cooking class was held in a big kitchen within one of the villas and each person had an individual cooking station. It is a cooking class and not a cooking demo, which makes it an even better experience.
Our cooking instructor was a personable Moroccon lady who made the class even more interesting by giving us relevant information about Moroccan culture, food and cooking. The owners of Janane Tamsna, a lovely couple, stopped by to interact with all of us and were around when we actually ate what we cooked.
What we set out to make: fish filos, chicken tagine and moroccan tea. Given that I don't eat fish, our cooking instructor showed me how to make vegetarian filos. She also got each one of us to make a different type of chicken tagine using both sweet and savory ingredients like potatoes, onions, apricots, etc. By the time we were done, we had 10 different tagines that we all got to share.
The interaction and ambiance created in the cooking class was great. At the end of the 3 hours, all ten of us found ourselves sitting together on one table, sharing the tagines and bottles of wine over a leisurely lunch. Made for a wonderful morning and afternoon spent! Highly recommend when in Marrakech.
