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 had such an amazing experience. We went to the class in the Medina which they have only recently opened. The kitchen was beautiful and the chef, guide and assistant were all great. The guide gave an introduction at the start which was really interesting. We cooked 2 delicious salads and a tangine. The chef showed us how to make... More

We had a blast at this cooking workshop. We were asked to come to the La maison arabe hotel and we're welcomed with a cup of moroccan tea. After 15min there was a car waiting to bring us to the country ranch where the workshop takes place. Must stay it was like being treated as royalty lol! Normally the workshop... More

This was a lovely day out in our holiday. My daughter and I both enjoyed the experience. The host explained the history and influences of morrocon culture on the food served and talked about the main ingredients we would be using. We learnt how to make bread and mint tea in the lovely gardens, before the main cooking event. Each... More

Absolutely beautiful location - the kitchen is really breathtaking -wonderful location to learn to cook Moroccan food. It's a very fun group activity - you can cook tajines, moroccan pastries, pastilla, etc. Takes about 3-4 hours but the real fun is eating what you worked so hard in the kitchen to cook!

My partner and I had wonderful day learning how to cook and thoroughly enjoyed what we produced. It was a very organised set up which meant that we could see what to do at all times either from looking at our screens or directly at our instructors. Have replicated our dishes many times since our return.

This was a fantastic experience at La Maison Arabe kitchen. The kitchen itself is state-of-the-art but in Moroccan fashion, the chef was very easy to understand and the staff very helpful. I am an experienced, passionate cook and the class still held my attention even though it is also designed to teach skills to the less experienced. It is completely... More

My husband and I enjoyed the course immensely. The general information about Moroccan cooking was also very useful. Also enjoyed the trip to the community bakery - wouldn't even have known it was there.

We attended this cooking course after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and various travel blogs and we were not disappointed! The set up of this cooking workshop is absolutely fantastic, set in idyllic gardens away from the hustle and bustle of the medina you are introduced to the history of Moroccan cuisine, the spices, herbs and influences.
