Owner description: At the entrance of the old medina, in a former almond warehouse, l'Atelier Madada welcomes you under its stone arches. By small groups (8 persons maximum) and supervised by a professional team (a cook and a trilingual presenter) our hosts discover the secrets of Moroccan gastronomy and are initiated into the delights of one of the best cuisine in the world. In a friendly and casual atmosphere, those half-day workshops teach each participant how to prepare a full traditional meal that one can then easily reproduce at home.

A really stylish venue and great food also. Definitely worth a visit as is the cookery school they run.

Brilliant! Absolutely fantastic experience, would recommend all to do this. Was very interesting and fab. We both did the course and felt the same way. Even bought a Tajine from the Medina to try ourselves. Definately recommend doing this!

I really desired to attend some cooking class in Morocco to have a touch of tradition, tajine and species. I took this chance in Essauoira in the wonderful, modern and clean l'Atelier Madada. I was in a class of three and we cooked harira soup and sardine kefta tajine. I tried to learn as much as I could and the experience was terribly positive. We also went to the market to buy species and a new tajine to take back to Italy. I thank Mona and everybody from l'Atelier Madada for the competence and the recipes.

If you want to learn some secrets of Moroccan cuisine in nice atmosphere, then l'atelier Madada is a place to visit. We took half day cooking course where prepared beef tajine with caramelized carrots and tomato + bissara (which is a soup from chickpeas). We really spent good time there, as people were friendly, settings were fine and the course itself was informative. In the beginning we also got to know how to make "right" Moroccan mint tea. When all the ingridients were ready, all spices added we put our pots on the cooker and left for an excursion to the suk. There we met Berber spice seller. He treated us with special tea and showed all the spice mixes he makes by himself. We used the opportunity and bought wide variety of spices. Finally we came back and enjoyed our meal. Thanks to chief cook!
