Really basic, down to earth, honest cooking course.No sophistication,like in the Riads or hotels. Here you visit a warm, welcoming family who had found a way to get an income for their family. Thank you we all appreciated and the food was great.

There are a number of cooking classes available in Essaouira but none seemed to be as authentic as this one. Here are some reasons we recommend it to travellers who aren't afraid of digging deeper into Moroccan culture: 1. You get to shop! We loved being guided through the market to buy the ingredients for our meal and being introduced... More

This is a wonderful experience. Latifa is a kind, experienced and knowledgeable guide of both the culture of Morocco and of course the food. We were accomodated greatly, being able to focus on vegetarian and vegan Moroccan cuisine. The experience was superb in helping us develop an understanding of the intricate work that goes into creating Moroccan dishes. I recommend... More

Arrangements were very easy, we had an immediate response to our e mail requesting a booking for the following day. We had a fantastic day with Latifa. She took us to the local market to choose our menu and ingredients before returning to her family home to cook up a feast. Latifa and her family were warm, friendly and informative.... More

Latifa is a lovely, warm and friendly host. She took us shopping in the markets for food and gave us plenty of choice for which dishes to cook. We then went in a taxi to her home where we felt very welcomed and learnt how to prepare and cook a 3 course lunch which was absolutely delicious. Although on the... More

My family and I, enjoyed a half day cooking class with Latifa the chef and her family. She is a great person and the dishes we made and taught us were just fantastic. We got the chance to prepare Moroccan tagine, zaalouk and crepes for dessert. I will absolutely come back one day and ask for more than a tagine... More

What a great experience with Latifa and her family. It was great to be given a choice of what to cook. Have done many cooking classes around the world and Latifa was the best. Approachable, patient and a true insight into the culture.
