What to Expect

This is a private half-day Moroccan cooking class and meal structured around lunchtime or dinnertime. After welcoming you and getting to know each other, your instructor will describe the menu based on fresh seasonal produce, popular traditional fare, and selections you made during booking. You can be hands-on as much as you like or simply sit back and observe the cooking process while you learn about Moroccan seasoning, key ingredients, Moroccan food traditions and more. This is a relaxed, fun and intimate way to learn authentic Moroccan home cooking. The class concludes by sitting down to the meal you helped prepare.
