Why we included this experience:

Prepare an authentic Moroccan tagine with expert guidance from a professional local chef.

Experience description

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.


  • Learn how to prepare a traditional Moroccan tagine
  • Visit to a souk to source the ingredients, with a helpful Arabic lesson beforehand

What's Included:

Good to know:

  • Moroccan dress standards are more conservative than most western countries and you should dress accordingly
  • As a general rule, shoulders, knees, and cleavage should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended, as it will restrict your entry into buildings, including private homes, and is considered disrespectful
  • Long, light-colored, lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers, and skirts are respectful, cover your body, and keep you cool in the heat, and protect you from the harsh sun

I thought it was brilliant, authentic and fun. It was a little expensive, but Morocco is a tourist town so i get that :)
