Great experience.

There were no great cooking skills needed to attend this course but we left with a very good understanding of how to use and cook with the tagine that we had bought in the souk. The food that we cooked made for an excellent lunch shared with new made friends. The fact that the cookery school is a charitable foundation that provides education and prospects for young disadvantaged Moroccan women was an added bonus.

Very nice cook at the Riad Karma in Marrakech, competent and delicious.

The cooking class itself was good. The organization was a disaster. We booked 5 hours, the cooking class took 1 hour, everything else was waiting and eating (3 hours in total). The time was adjusted at short notice and the organizer kept changing details, really bad. Got about 10 What's app ........

Perfect day !! Very welcoming and professional staff

I was the only French among an English group. The young woman did the French translation for me and everything was perfect!! We were shown the mint tea ceremony, semolina bread making, learned how to cook the chicken tagine and the tasting was very good!! We had received lots of advice!! I had a great day!! I recommend this activity 1000%
