This experience was a highlight of our trip to Marrakech. Chef Leila was so kind, knowledgeable and welcoming. We really felt like we were part of the family. And we made some of the best food that we had during our trip! Highly recommend!!

We booked a private cooking class for our family and had a BLAST. Our kiddos (6, 4, and 1) loved shopping for the ingredients, cooking it up, and getting to know Chef Leila. Highly recommend for a peaceful and fun family evening! We can’t wait to make these recipes at home!!

C’était une très belle expérience de vie. Pouvoir rencontrer Laila et sa famille, aller au marché loin de la zone touristique, en immersion totale et échanger sur les habitudes, les modes de vie, la culture. Cuisiner ensemble plusieurs plats et les déguster… tout était parfait. Je recommande vivement cette expérience.

I highly recommend this experience! Not only was it delicious food and very kind hosts, I also learned a lot about Moroccan culture. The experience was very relaxing and not too much cooking. Very fun!
