Fantastic authentic experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience! We had amazing hosts and really well thought through instruction with everyone able to get involved. The food was really good and there was so much for us to eat. I might have liked a bit more of a talk about the market and local produce as we started the tour, but other than that it was a great evening class. It lasted nearly 5 hours so great value for money!

It was a really fun and educational morning and I would definitely recommend doing this in Marrakech and will be trying the recipes at home.

Thanks for a truly great time. It was a great few hours shopping and cooking and learning about Moroccan food. The kids loved it and loved eating all the food at the end. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants a great Moroccan experience

Great experience. Left Marocco with a lot of inspiration to impress my friends in the kitchen:)

It was a great experience! The group was nice, Kawtar is super friendly and answers all your questions, Khmisa is a real knowledgeable (and cute) chef who involves everyone in the cooking process, and the result was super tasty. After the feast, Kawtar gives you the option to buy the homemade spices, made by Khmisa. The prices compete with the souks, but no hassling is needed for these fair prices, and quality is guaranteed. After the class ended, I asked Khmisa if she could help me buy a decent Tajine on the market just around the corner. She was totally up for it and was happy to help us even after the class finished. I would definitely recommend this class to my friends.

Amazing experience, authentic Moroccan food, best vibes!

We had SO MUCH FUN! Super good communication and pick-up. As a group you get to choose what recipe you’re going to cook, which is great if you have something specific in mind, if not you’ll get a flavour of all the most iconic Moroccan dishes. You get to pick up fresh ingredients from the market and—after learning how to make mint tea—cook them together under the guidance of an authentic Moroccan auntie in her own home! If you’re a cooking beginner, don’t worry - she’ll do all of the hard work. If you’re more experienced, she’ll be able to answer even the most specific questions about spices, cooking methods, recipes etc. The food was DELICIOUS. Honestly better than most restaurants we tried during our stay. But what was best was all the fun we had preparing it. We recommended it to a friend who visited us in Marrakech. This is honestly a must!!! Thanks so much!

Cooking class

Overall I have to be honest and say we were a little disappointed with the overall experience. The class wasn't what we expected. We took a while deciding what class to pick and this seemed the cheapest option. On booking, the description said it would be a "private class" and it turned out to be a group activity when we thought it would just be us. It also said it would be 1-6 person and there were 8 of us exceeding the maximum number. This meant that we ended up contributing barely anything to the cooking. I.e. we literally chopped maybe one vegetable each and put in one spoon of spice each. It felt more like a demonstration rather than a cooking class. I think the description is a little misleading. I think a suggestion for improvement would be if we were allowed to have a tajine dish between each pair (rather than 1 tajine dish between 8 people!) and then have the cook demonstrating in front of us, while we copy her so that we truly learn how to make it. Also if it is to be a group activity, I think maximum 4 people is more than enough. We were disappointed that we also weren't given any actual tips and tricks during the cooking. We were also told not to worry about writing any notes down for the recipes as we went along as we would be sent the recipes afterwards, however, we have not received anything! Also they did not sit with us while we ate which is unfortunate as would have been nice to socialise and ask questions about Moroccan food and hear what the locals had to say. I understand they did not want to eat which is fine, but they could have still sat with us. It turned out to be more of a social activity to meet other travellers which is fine if that is what you wanted! But if you want an actual cooking class then maybe reconsider your options. The only good thing was the food was delicious and the tajine tasted exceptional, with so much flavour. The ladies were also kind and even waited for us even though we were running late! Definitely some room for improvement though!

Hello Tazneem, Thank you for your feedback and we are very surprised to know that our experience didn't meet your expectation - You were 30 minutes late, all the group had to wait for you to start cooking and you missed the experience of shopping in the mlocal food market -Your choice was made cause we are Top 1 cooking class in Marrakech not only the cheapest -In the description it's written shared group of 1- 9 person , not private class , we do have private option as well but you didn't choose it ( The desciption and options for bookings are very clear and written in the ticket) - All the cooking process including chopping vegetables and spices were made by you, Chef Khmisa is giving the instructions only - During all the experience, we had time to socialize , we were talking, sharing tips and tricks , i even showed you how to buy from the market, how to negociate... , where to go in Marrakech, where to eat... - We did send you all the recipes after the class and you did confirm the reception and thanked us!! - We do cook as group cause we wanna share how Moroccans prepare the food as teamwork and family together - During the lunch, we didn't sit with you cause it was time to eat and taste the food, we had time to talk before and after and you were asked to feel free to ask about anything you wanna know, not only the cooking - At the end of the session , you asked us to go with you and buy a tajine even if it's not included in the experience and we did accept with pleasure We hope that you gonna make the moroccan food back to home with the tajine we got together from the market and welcome with us anytime

Fabulous cooking in a Riad in the old city
Anna_W
, Feb 2022
A great experience walking into Chef Khmisa’s home and into her riad, in the old city and learning to cook a vegetarian and chicken and preserved lemon tagines plus multiple starters. With the help of Kawtar we were understand all of the different spices we were using and the methodology. We would have liked to have had more of an experience buying all of the ingredients. But that aside it was well worth it. Now we have bought our own tagines - we will try to emulate Chef Khamisa back home.

Tasty Morrocan food

We loved getting tips on how to prepare and season Moroccan dishes properly. It was interesting to find out how mint tea, preserved lemons and spice mix are actually made, and to find out about all the different spices. We enjoyed the lesson which was very ably translated and explained by Kawtar. It was nice to cook in someone´s home with a few other people.

Had a delightful cooking class w Chef Khmisa and Host Kawtar in October. Met a nice group of other travellers. The food we cooked was delicious and authentic. A lovely way to spend the morning/noon. Now looking forward to cooking a few of the dishes at home.

Honestly an amazing experience. All our questions are answered, and what should be complex cooking was put simply and explained clearly to us. I absolutely loved the outcome and the people we met. The host was organised and friendly and the chef was competent and warm. Plus the people I met on the day just made me laugh loads! Breaking bread with good people. I would book this experience again in a heart beat.
