Full description

You will meet Khmisa and Kawtar, who will host you for a meal at Khmisa's place in the heart of Medina. Enjoy Moroccan traditional cuisine together with the chefs. You will be welcomed with traditional mint tea.

First, you will discuss with the chefs the menu choices for you, which will be composed of the most typical best Moroccan dishes. Then you will go with Chef Khmisa to the Old Souk. The walk through the souk to buy the fresh ingredients will allow you to learn more about Moroccan culinary culture.

Once back home from the market, you will start the preparation with the chef. You can sit and enjoy the meal with your group, or if you’ve chosen the private tour option, dine with your close friends and family and take in the home-cooked food.

Had a fantastic afternoon's experience. Shopping for fresh ingredients in the local's market, then preparing three courses in a local residence was great fun and a good learning experience. Our group was a mix of English and French speaking participants which was challenging but the host and chefs accommodated really well and always took the time to ensure a totally inclusive experience. There was some really good instruction, everything from how to make good tea to the use of spices. A huge thank you to a wonderful group of ladies!

Such an amazing experience, like no other cooking class I’ve taken. You are welcomed into someone’s home, and what follows feels like a real home cooking experience. Khmisa is a fantastic teacher and a friendly host, and the class is taught in such a way that all the students are fully collaborating on a meal we will all share, yet I still feel I have all the skills and knowledge necessary now to replicate what we did by myself at home. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough

We started off by walking across a market to buy some groceries and were told a little bit about how shopping at the market works. Then we got to enjoy a really nice cooking class, preparing sort of a three course menu all together. We also ate what we made and honestly it was some of the best food we had during our vacation! Home made food is always the best also the guides are very warm and welcoming!
