The world-renowned cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe are open to hotel guests and those staying elsewhere in Marrakech. At the half-day classes, one learns the secrets of Moroccan cuisine, considered the most refined on the African continent. The workshops are run by a dada (traditional Moroccan chef), a translator (French/English), and include a visit to a nearby spice market and communal bread oven. After the workshop, during which every participant has worked alongside the dada at his or her own workstation, one dines on the delicious meal that's been prepared. The cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe have been praised by the leading international travel and food press, including The New York Times Sunday Travel Section, Travel + Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Saveurs, and Virtuoso Life.

We visited Marrakech Feb 2017 and decided to do the cooking class at La Maison Arabe. We really enjoyed the whole experience from the tea ceremony, to the local neighbourhood bakery, to the class itself. Great explanations and instructions, plenty of hands on opportunities to cook, and tasty food at the end of it. The entrees and tagine were fun... More

This cooking class was one of the best moments of our trip to Morocco. We had the chance to learn more about the food and the culture of Morocco. The staff is really kind and available for every doubt. The food was delicious (Thanks, Dada!!!) and bountiful. It was an amazing experience!!

A superb last day to a really enjoyable trip to Marrakech. The session was very well organised, the facilities amazing, the presenter very clear with every explanation and the dada smiling and encouraging with every part of her demonstrations. The final results were a delicious meal, made all the more enjoyable because we had prepared it ourselves and had fun... More

Absolutely wonderful. My partner & I have just enjoyed a fantastic Moroccan cookery class today at 'La Masion Arabe' in Marrakesh. So friendly, so professional, the facilities were amazing and the food was just sublime. Highly recommended on all levels.

A great experience from first contact. We wandered into the beautiful Riad / hotel to make enquiries about the class and felt so welcomed. The concierge walked us around to the cookery school / boutique to meet the team here. This was in another beautiful restored residential property in the old town, the classrooms were stunning, state of the art.... More

I attended the cookery class with my sister yesterday morning and it was so interesting. Really enjoyed the whole experience - learning about the culture, visiting the communal bread oven up the road, learning how the Morroccans use spices in their dishes. Wafa is very professional and has a good sense of humour. The room itself has flat screen tv... More

While the cost of this experience is certainly in the upper end of the spectrum (600 MAD/£56 per person for a few hours) if you love Moroccan food, cooking, or just learning something new this experience is CERTAINLY worth it. The expertise of the staff teaching the course is second to none, and it's a great way to spend a... More

What a wonderful afternoon! Welcomed into the beautiful environment by charming staff and delicious drinks. Our lovely interpreter showed us the local bread oven and then we strolled to the cookery school to learn about Moroccan tea and spices before the hands-on lesson started. We were so impressed with the professional teaching set-up and the luxury of being looked after... More

we loved this experience, looked up a few places but glad we chose this one. Worth every cent. The venue itself is world class, the facilities were very professional. Personal stations and screens to watch the dada (main chef). We had gifts and a diploma to take away. Even had an in depth introduction to cuisine, spices and tea. Highly... More

We stayed at La Maison Arabe and knew we had to do this course. Well worth it. Wonderful staff - Waffa and the amazing Dada - very informative and fun. Kitchen impeccable and modern. Highly recommend.
