When I visit a new country, I often like to take a cooking class. This is by far the best class combined with overall experience that I've had.
We were met in the main square by our assistant. She is a Moroccan student trying to help her family. She spoke flawless English and immediately put as at ease. During our 3+ hours together, she taught my husband and me about Morocco, the culture and her life. It was a pleasure to get to know her.
We navigated our way through the souk to our host's house. It was such a surprise to be lead down the small alleyway and into a local home. Our host welcomed us, introduced us to her family and, althought she spoke via our assistant, made us feel at ease in her home.
We made traditional Moroccan bread, a tagine and a traditional aubergine side dish. The food was delicious. We also made traditional mint tea and were treated to home made biscuits.
The food and the experience made our trip to Marrakech. I highly recommend it
