Experience Morocco: Visit a Souq and Cook Moroccan Food in Marrakech
From US$70.00
Cook a feast of traditional Moroccan foods with a small-group Marrakech cooking class that includes lunch in a traditional Moroccan home. Since you’ll go all the way from market-fresh ingredients to a finished meal, this cooking class is a great way to learn techniques and recipes that you can easily recreate in your home kitchen.
What to Expect
Join a guide at Jemaa el-Fnaa, then head into the historic medina to shop for the day’s ingredients. You’ll browse stalls selling meat and vegetables as well as locally-grown olives, mint, saffron, and citrus fruits, learning the Arabic words for key ingredients as you shop.

Next, visit a traditional Moroccan home to meet the chef and start to cook. You’ll prepare a main such as tagine or tangia, both baked dishes of couscous with vegetables and meat, harira, a hearty soup served with dates, or pastila, an apple-based dessert.

When the meal is ready, sit down in the courtyard to share the feast with your fellow cooks and travelers. At the end of the leisurely lunch, return to Jemaa el-Fnaa, where you can shop for spices to bring home, or just soak up the bustling atmosphere of the city’s most iconic square.

It's about 6 hours. I think we took a long time over lunch!
