Café Clock in Fes
At Café Clock in Fes, students spend just one day learning to prepare authentic Moroccan food, from planning the menu, to the final preparations of the food. Café Clock, and Chef Souad, are so well regarded this is one of the most popular activities in all of the capitol city. Make your plans early if you hope to gain a spot.
Students enrolled in the cooking school start the day in the morning by planning their own personal menu. If you are among the lucky ones, you then take your list to the souk where you scour the area for the most amazing and freshest ingredients. By mid afternoon, you have learned some of the time-honored techniques, and have time to sit back and enjoy your 3-course feast.
La Maison Arabe
You do not need to be a hotel guest to enroll in one of the famous cooking workshops at La Maison Arabe. The half-day long courses are taught by a dada, or rather a traditional Moroccan chef. A translator for both English and French is also on hand to help lead you on an excursion to a nearby spice market.
All participants in the La Maison Arabe cooking workshop have their own workstation, where they learn alongside the dada, then dine on their incredible meal at the end. The workshop also includes a visit to the communal bread oven. Small, large or private cooking classes are all available.
Tucked inside a luxury Marrakech hotel, Maison Mk offers two separate, and private, opportunities for those hoping to learn to cook authentic Moroccan meals. The first course is a half-day long, featuring a walk through the Mellah market where you learn all about local ingredients and how to use them in your cooking. Here you will buy all the meat, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables you need to construct your meal. Learn to prepare tagine, mint tea and authentic Moroccan salads.
The other course taught at maison mk is also a half-day long, but includes only cooking, with selections already made by the chef. You learn to make bread the traditional way in a communal, wood-fired oven. You may find it difficult to get a spot, though, as non-residents are only admitted to a small number of cooking courses.
Restaurant Riad Monceau
Learn a few secrets about preparing authentic dishes, as you enter the elegant cooking class at Restaurant Riad Monceau in Marrakesh. The restaurant offers both morning and afternoon sessions. The half-day workshops teach visitors how to prepare either a starter course and a main course, or a main course and dessert. At the end of the preparations, you will have time to taste and analyze your original creations.
If you have wondered what goes into making tasty Moroccan pastries, you will learn the secrets here. If you do plan to sign up for a class, be sure to book way ahead of time. Classes fill quickly.
Hakima’s Moroccan Cooking School
If you not only want to learn to cook Moroccan food, but also give back to the community itself, there is Hakima’s Moroccan Cooking School. This non-profit group says it takes the proceeds from the cooking workshop, and uses it to fund job training and literacy for Moroccan women and girls.
The school features single day, or even weeklong classes. Here you visit the local market, explore the kitchens and prepare an incredible meal. Classes are small at this school, capped at just four to six students. Instructors speak English and French. Along with the use of local ingredients, technique and presentation are two commanding skills taught at the school.
