“Amazing experience”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We love to cook and we had planned to do a morrocan cookery course but cooking with Nezha was far better than we could even have expected.
She took us to shop for spices where she explained all the different ones used in Moroccan cuisine. We then went around the market to buy the fish and meat before she took us to her house in a Berber village outside the town where we prepared some tajines and sides. We visited the village oven to get fresh hot bread. It was a very peaceful and relaxed environment with pauses for mint tea and local delicacies. We ate the meal together and surprised us with Moroccan ice cream. Yum!

“Amazing day”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We booked this course through our Riad and were so glad we did. We had a fantastic day (10am-18:30) and made and tried so many dishes in Fatima's lovely garden in her Berber Village. Would highly recommend this course. Make sure you don't have dinner plans for the evening as you won't need any!

“Lovely day in Marrakesh”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had a super time and the food we made was amazing. We were picked up in the Djemma al Fna square at the Cafe de France and went straight to the Mellah market in the old Jewish quarter to gather spices. We saw them make the Filo dough we used for the goat cheese, potato and herb parcels we made, which were delicious. The cooking took place in a lovely courtyard and we really enjoyed the company of the women that helped with the prep work and of course the lovely Fatima, who both taught us, and chatted with us during the entire process. I felt like we learned a lot about women in Morocco that day, made a few friends, and also enjoyed a little Oasis away from the crowded medina. : ) Oh, and the Lemon Chicken Tagine we made was moist and fabulous! Our day was from 11-5 ish and well worth the price we paid!

“Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

As like most have posted on here, it was an excellent experience from trying the spices, gathering our produced and chicken (I will never forget that part!). Fatima was great and the food we cooked was fit for a King! We enjoyed this experience on 20-Mar.

“A wonderful cultural and culinary experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We arranged a cooking class through our Riad with Fatima. She picked us up and we went through the market. We got to sample all of those exotic spices, meet our chicken and watch as it was quickly and expertly skinned by the local butcher, and pick out our vegetables. We drove a 1/2 hour outside the city to her berber village and spent the whole day cooking, eating and talking in the beautiful courtyard. She answered all of our questions about Moroccan life and culture. It was a wonderful cultural and culinary experience. An amazing value. We spent the entire day with her.
