What you'll do

welcome to my cooking class, you will have a memorable and wonderful personal cooking experience.

I have written a général itinerary of what we are going to do. Please take a minute to read it.

We will meet next to the local pharmacy near my home, to facilitate the meeting point for you.

We will then buy what we will need for the course (vegetables, meat ...), and we will go to the house located in the old medina.

I'll start my cooking class teaching you how to make traditional Moroccan tea, then we'll settle in for tea time and enjoy delicious Moroccan cookies and cakes as we get to know each other.

the menu will consist of a starter, a main course and a dessert (all will be of your choice)

I will walk you through the cooking process step by step and teach you my personal cooking technique and my unique selection of herbs and spices to create the most authentic Moroccan meal you have ever tasted.

feel free to ask me if you want to buy spices, I can bring you to where I buy them, with local prices, and I am sure you will be satisfied.

I can be of great help in helping you find that special gift, jewelry, visit a place you have in mind ...

if you are thinking of making a Moroccan Tatoo, I will be happy to give it to you as a gift.
don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Wow! Where do I begin?! My two teenage children and I joined Najlae in her home for a cooking class. We were joined by a lovely Belgian couple. Najlae transitioned seamlessly between English and French as she mesmerized us with stories, culinary tips, and her passion for cooking and life. We were so enamored with our time with her that we asked to join her for her Argan oil making class…which she arranged later that evening to accommodate our schedule. The Belgian couple changed their plans to do it as well…after telling me that Najlae had been the highlight of their 7 day trip to Morocco. But back to the cooking class…Najlae made the menu up on the spot with the contributions/preferences of the participants. The end result was 7 amazing dishes (and a dessert), each of which was delicious! It’s no wonder why she has such high ratings. We arrived to class as tourists and left as lifelong friends. No visit to Marrakech should end without spending time with Najlae!

This experience is a must do when you are in Marrakech! Najlae was not only a fantastic teacher and guide in the kitchen but she was also such a kind, sociable and energetic host/guide for insights into life in Marrakech and tips about what to do during your stay in Morocco. She took us to all the shops where locals buy their fresh produce and gave us an opportunity to try some traditional Marrakech foods before we ate our extremely delicious dinner cooked as a team in her home. On top of all that, she gave me a Henna tattoo! I cannot reccomend this experience enough!

Une expérience exceptionnelle ! J’ai passé un super moment avec Najlae et les deux personnes qui formaient notre groupe, Najlae est drôle, accueillante, bienveillante et nous met tout de suite à l’aise ! Nous passons d’abord faire le petit marché et Najlae vous laisse carte blanche, nous avons même pu essayé quelques petits « Street Food » qu’on aurait jamais essayé. Najlae est de merveilleux conseils et nous transmets toutes la merveilleuse hospitalité et l’incroyable accueil de Marrakech ! Un tout grand merci :)

We loved our cooking class with Najlae! We went grocery shopping with her and learned a lot about the maroccan way of buying food and cooking. We felt very welcomed and comfortable at her place and she gave us great advice where to buy spices and co. All in all, this is highly recommended and if you have time you should definitly spend your time with Najlae. You will love it, we promise! Wir haben unseren Kochkurs mit Najlae geliebt! Wir sind Lebensmittel einkaufen gegangen un haben viel über die marrokanischen Einkaufsgewohnheiten und Kochkünste gelernt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl und wilkommen bei ihr gefühlt und sie hat uns tolle Tipps gegeben, wo man Gewürze und andere Sachen am besten kaufen sollte. Zusammengefasst empfehlen wir sehr diesen Kochkurs zu besuchen und Zeit mit Najlae zu verbringen. Ihr werdet es lieben, versprochen! Vi kan virkelig anbefale cooking class med Najlae! Hun tok oss med for å kjøpe ingredienser der hvor de lokale handler, og vi fikk muligheten til å lære mye om marokanske måter å gjøre ting på! Vi følte oss veldig velkommen og komfortable hjemme hos henne, og vi fikk virkelig nytte av hennes mange tips! Alt i alt, kan vi virkelig anbefale å tilbringe tid med Najilae, du vil ikke angre!
