We had a wonderful time at our cooking class in Essaouira! Khadija and Hussein were fantastic hosts and we truly felt welcomed into their home. The class was very well organized and Khadija did an excellent job of explaining what we were doing and made sure to get everyone involved. The food was fantastic and I'm so glad we booked this experience!

Khadija and Hussein were lovely hosts: a wonderful experience joining them in their home to be shown how to cook a lovely Moroccan meal. They were kind enough to tell us about their lives and for us to share some of our experiences. Well recommended memory to take home with us.

Warm family welcomed us into their home. What many dishes we helped to make with the woman in the house, Khadija, who is a trained chef in a Moroccan kitchen. We were only two but I think you can be more. Highly recommended.
