The traditional North African dish tagine is a slow-cooked stew, prepared with meat, fish or vegetables and combined with various fruits and spices. It’s actually named after the earthenware pots that it is cooked in, and you’ll be using one of these while you learn how to cook this delicious meal. Your experience begins with a visit to a local souk, a Moroccan market where you’ll be given a short Arabic lesson to enable you to purchase ingredients from the stallholders.
During the cookery lesson, hosted by a friendly local chef in a lovely traditional riad, you’ll learn about the history of Moroccan cuisine, its influences and the various ingredients such as mint and olives from Meknes, and citrus fruits from Fez. Once the meal is ready, sit down to enjoy it while you get to know your fellow chefs! And don’t forget you’ll also receive a handy recipe guide so you can make your own tagine when you get home.
