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.

This was a very rewarding and fun cooking class. The kitchen is clean and modern. This is a great way to find out about Moroccan cuisine and you eat what you cook, so dinner is sorted. Portions are large, so be sure to work up an appetite! I highly recommend.

Starting with a introduction to how mint/green tea should be made, spices and visit to a bakery we were engrossed and hanging off the words from our very knowledgeable hostess. Then it was to the very well equipped classroom/kitchen where we met the 'DaDa' and her assistant who instructed us how to make local salads and a chicken tagine. We... More

I did this cooking class with my kids and parents - aged 16 to 83 - and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not very difficult food to prepare, but still challenging enough. We learned how to prepare two typical Moroccan warm salads and a great chicken tangine. The kitchen facilities were extremely good! State of the art stuff and... More

We are still raving about the fantastic cooking class we had at at Maison L'Arabe Our guide Hasna and the chef gave us an excellent intro to the Moroccan cuisine. We were taught about traditional bread baking, we saw a local bakery, and we prepared our own 3 course meal. The course is exactly the right level of hands on... More

The facility is top notch! We visited a nearby bakery to see how true Moroccan bread is made. After an introduction to Moroccan tea and spices, our group was escorted up to the kitchen. The equipment was spotless. There were large video screens at every station so you could see the chef/teacher. Food prep was done so we only had... More

We attended the cooking school during our Christmas holiday in Morocco. The staff were welcoming and informative. The school itself is very well designed and equipped. We felt like expert Moroccan chefs at the end. We cooked three dishes and had them for lunch afterwards. We highly recommend this cookery school.

The facilities are second to none, truly a great set-up and staff. Wafa was particularly knowledgeable and passionate about her culture and cuisine. we made a chicken tajine, bread, 2 warm salads and then got to eat the lot... More

This class was fun, informative, and delicious. The meal was also the best I had in Marrakech -- I wasn't thrilled with my riad's cooking, or the other two places I've eaten here. But the recipes they teach you are phenomenal. The class starts with a look at the bread ovens, then a demonstration of the proper way to brew... More

A great experience. Starting with the proper way to make and serve mint tea, we then proceeded to the instructive kitchen for the lesson in making bread, seven vegetable couscous and tomato eggplant salad. Facility was very good with fully appointed individual stations. A chef instructor at the head of the room with video monitors and assistants circulating around to... More
