Overview
Spend the day exploring Morocco’s vibrant spices and cuisine with a local cook in Casablanca, preparing an authentic meal in a home kitchen. This is the perfect way to get beyond the tourist trail to experience the real Moroccan culture, as you share a welcome drink, learn to find the very best produce and spices, then cook a seasonal menu with a traditional dessert. Choose between a lunch and dinner experience, and take home some of the secrets of the Moroccan kitchen.
What to Expect

Meet at your local host's home in an upscale neighborhood in Casablanca. After a refreshing drink and getting to know each other, head out to visit the local market. Your guide will help you navigate the market, which can be overwhelming to explore on your own. She will show you where to buy fresh produce, take you to the meat market (not for the faint of heart but a true, local experience), and show you the spices that are on offer.

Once your market experience is complete you will head back to the local’s home by car to get cooking. During your cooking lesson you will learn to prepare a Moroccan meal in a home kitchen. Be ready to roll up your sleeves and help prepare an authentic Moroccan meal using seasonal ingredients and perhaps Casablanca’s local seafood. You might try lamb tagine with seasonal vegetables, marinated and grilled seafood, Moroccan lemon chicken with olives, couscous, tchackchouka (roasted bell pepper salad), camel burger or zaalouk (eggplant salad) with homemade bread. You will conclude your meal with a dessert such as milk pastilla, oranges with cinnamon or Moroccan cakes.

Please Note: Your local host has two young children and they might be present during your experience.

In addition, please remember, this is not meant to be a professional cooking class, rather this visit is an experience in a local's home so you can share Moroccan culture and cuisine together.

Fabulous cultural experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Chamsi. Everything from the buying of ingredients, preparing and cooking of the food to the eating, was fabulous. Wonderful to spend time with, and learn from, such a warm person. The Couscous Royale and Dessert were both delicious.

You will not regret a minute of this experience.

For this foodie/homecook, every minute of this experience was a delight. Chamsi is an amazing host and a patient, knowledgeable teacher. Loved our trip to the market - Chamsi pulls you in so that you are part of her interaction with the vendors, who are...More

Excellent Experience!

It was my first time to Morrocco. I was up for an adventure, but also leery about being in a place not knowing a language spoken or having phone access in case of issues. Let's say that Chamsi and her husband relieved all my fears...More
