What you'll do
The cooking class will be held in the riad. We are in the heart of the old medina of Marrakech, near the main square. Upon arrival our guests will be greeted with a tasty and aromatic Moroccan mint tea. We will discuss and choose the menu together with Aicha. We prepare the shopping list and then our new chefs will jump into the traditional old market (souk). A small tour to buy fresh ingredients, walking through aromas of spices and local traditions. Back to the riad we will start to prepare the dishes selected with the support, explanation and help of Aicha. In the cooking time they can relax on the roof top terrace, with a beautiful view on the medina and the main mosque of Marrakech. Usually their private home made lunch/dinner will be serve on the terrace or in the courtyard of the riad. Within 1 week from the cooking class the chef will receive the recipes by mail.
I believe in love at the first sight. It happened in my life many times: 10 years ago with Morocco, 8 years ago with my riad and also with our chef Aicha. Coming from a berber family, she guided me into the deep of the traditional moroccan kitchen. She explained me everything, all her secrets and with enthusiasm she passed on my the love for Moroccan cuisine. Everything is prepared from the scratch, only with fresh ingredients and always in the traditional way. My goal with this cooking experience is push the moroccan kitchen all around the world. Togheter with me and Aicha, there are Abdou and Marina part of my team. Abdou is also coming from a berber family, young moroccan guy with kitchen passion. Marina living here since 2010 is moroccan food addicted.
