Accommodation

During the culinary tour, you will stay at Riad Safa, Marrakech. There are five guest rooms around two patios in a house with a serene and quiet Arab-Andalusian architecture and is dominated by whites and wood. There are several salons to lounge around the fireplace in winter and a dining room under glass pyramids. In addition, there is also a lovely plunge pool on the lush roof terrace and in-house wellness facilities.

Program

In this cooking holiday, you will learn to cook and live as real Moroccans. You will start the day by going to a local market, the souk, where locals sell their home-grown goods and foods. You will learn on the spot how to find the best spices and ingredients such as citron, confit, smen, argan oil, and other typical Moroccan spices. In addition, you will try haggling in the market like a real Moroccan.

During the cooking activities, you will be cooking in a courtyard of Riad, a traditional Moroccan house, in the open air space. You will also drink mint tea while looking at recipe together, divide the tasks, then start cooking. This process will take about four hours. Afterwards, you will try your own cooked dishes and enjoy them while drinking a glass of Moroccan wine.

Included excursions

Included in this program is a visit to High Atlas Mountain.
