One of the ways to explore Marrakech is Edwinas extravaganzas shopping tour. During this tour, you will explore wonderful things to take home such as spices, leather goods, fabrics, and rugs. Edwina will take you to hidden places holding hearts desires in Marrakech. When traveling, you will go to the homes of the locals who make lovely things, to an isolated village where the carpets are chosen from the looms of the ladies, the potter in the mountains. Edwina offers shopping extravaganzas to hidden places holding hearts desires where she has carefully sourced wonderful things being sold and often made by good guys in tucked away spots not visited by guides.
Edwina grew up in a home where dinner parties and entertaining were the life and blood and this lifestyle continued for the million married years that followed but in July 2000, came the time for re-invention. Shedding everything with a key, she left Australia bound for Spain with receipts for things following. After a few years, with the re-invention still a work in progress, she bought a riad in Morocco, as a culinary destination for gourmands wanting to come, be and do fabulous, with cooking classes and way off the tourist trail, wonderful food, road trips, and picnics.
Dada Hasna is House of Fusion Marrakech's resident chef. Dada teaches all the more traditional Moroccan dishes using her own recipes. Edwina and Dada have been cooking alongside each other for more than five years, quite the team!
