What you'll do

We will start by shopping in the market where the locals buy the freshest ingredients. We will purchase meat, pastries, vegetables, and spices from my friends at the shops.

You can choose your ingredients for the tajine – either beef, lamb, chicken, fish, or vegetarian. *If you would like fish , please let me know beforehand, so I can prepare it.

Then we will head to my home, where I will make the traditional Moroccan mint tea and we will prepare the food and cook together.

It was a very good experience in order to meet other people, learn about food, street market, local products and traditional Moroccan kitchen. Abdou is passionate about meeting people from all over the world and exchange about different subjects, he speaks few languages fluently and is a very open minded person who is able to invite “the world” at his table and share with them his interest for other cultures his deep connection and respect for its original culture and tradition. After cooking with him you will be able to to prepare a Moroccan dish by yourself at home!

Abdou is a wonderful host! I especially enjoyed shopping for fresh produce & meats in the medina, and Abdou was very informative about their prices. He answered all of our questions regarding the recipe and preparation of Moroccan classics like tagines & couscous, and regaled us with stories and tea while waiting for the tagine to cook. Overall, a great learning experience. Highly recommended. Salamat, Abdou!

Abdou was a great host and really kind with the kids, who enjoyed helping in the cooking. Very interesting activity. Just a warning if you go with kids.. Don't ask for chicken tagine, unless you want to meet the chicken alive!
