Much to my mother's disappointment, I'm not a keen cook, but I thought I would give L'Atelier Madada a try while my husband was windsurfing. What a fun and fascinating day! In a small group, we were talked through every step of our recipes (with the chef talking in French and an English translation provided), including the preparation of all of our ingredients and facts about what we were cooking. While our food was cooking we were taken on a trip to the spice market which was fascinating and gave us some really useful insights into the ingredients available and hints and tips for buying. The food we cooked was delicious, and the recipes emailed to us so we didn't have to try and remember everything on the day. I've made my dishes a couple of times in the few weeks since we we got home and they've worked really well. My mother will be proud!
