It's so nice to be greeted like an old friend. Hasna, Saida and Erradi all welcomed me back and welcomed my sister whose first trip it was to Marrakech. The room (Dades) is comfortable, especially the beds, and the decorations, pictures and furnishings all give the riad the feel of staying in a rich friend's home. Best this time was the cookery lesson. Starting with a trip to the markets (including buying very fresh chicken, in that it's alive before being discreetly given the chop), buying spices, olives, vegetables etc. then two hours spent happily in the riad kitchen helping and watching whilst three dishes are prepared and cooked. I now have three great dishes to wow friends with. It was also a chance to do something different and learn from a talented cook.
