Cooking and Eating with a local family

Food & Drink, Fes & Meknes

A 6-hour cooking class at a family home with an ingredients shopping trip prior to preparing and eating lunch/dinner 

The Morning class starts at 10.00 am then eat lunch with family.
The Afternoon class starts at 15.00 pm then eat dinner with family.

The cooking class takes aprox 5 hours or  to cook a Pastilla it takes 6 hours.

You will meet the family to decide first from the menu what you prefer to cook for the main course - the meals are:

Break kneading and baking at local bakery
2 Moroccan cooked salads
Main dish -  Clients choice

Traditional Fassi Desert
How to prepare Moroccan mint tea


Then go with the family and translator to the market to shop for ingredients (included in cost);  afterwards return to the family home to cook together the meal for lunch/dinner and eat it with the family.

The class ends by preparing and drinking fresh mint tea.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
