Learn to cook traditional Moroccan dishes at this cooking school in Marrakech.
The legendary restaurant at La Maison Arabe today offers cooking workshops designed for the amateur and professional alike.
The workshops are conducted by a dada (traditional Moroccan cook) or a chef from our Moroccan restaurant and are held at the hotel. Small groups, of maximum 10 participants, work alongside a translator (Arabic/English/French), using easy-to-use modern equipment found in everyday kitchens. At the end of each workshop, participants dine on the meal they have prepared. At a typical half-day workshop, one learns to prepare an appetizer and a main dish, or a main dish and dessert. Details upon request.
At our world-renowned cooking workshop you:
·Are greeted and given an overview of Moroccan cuisine and spices by a French or English interpreter.
·Are shown how Moroccan bread is made.
·Will visit a communal bread oven and hotel spice shop.
·Work at your own workstation alongside the Dada to prepare a delicious Moroccan meal including salad, main course and dessert.
·Participate in a Moroccan tea ceremony.
·Dine on the mouth-watering lunch you’ve prepared, with optional Moroccan wine pairings.

Our Medina Treasures tour was very enjoyable, and the cookery workshop at La Maison Arabe was even better.

The cookery course at Maison d'Arabe was amazing, I would definitely go on that again.

One of the best parts of the short trip was the cooking class at La Maison
Arabe. Wafaa Amagui, the workshop manager, made sure everything ran smoothly
and I really appreciated how the class was geared to our level of experience.
Many times, the classes are watered down and not so insightful, but it was not
the case here. I highly recommend this class to anyone who enjoys eating
