    What to Expect
    On entering the ancient medina, in an area formerly know for it's warehouses, holding stock en-route through the famous port of Essaouira, linking the caravannes of Africa to Europe, L 'Atelier Madada's industrial chic interior sits harmoniously within the arches and high ceiling of this former almond warehouse, perfect for hosting our daily Moroccan cookery classes or organising customised events for our clients.
    In a friendly and informal atmosphere, the secrets of Moroccan cuisine are explored and supervised by our professional team, a Moroccan chef and a host to be able to deliver the classes in English, French and Arabic.
