Marrakech Cooking School offers daily Moroccan cooking courses in a tranquil riad with poolside setting, in the centre of Marrakech medina near the Mellah. Based at the beautiful Riad Africa, chef Fatim-Zahra has over 30 years’ experience of cooking delicious Moroccan dishes. In small groups of up to 10 'trainees' Fatim-Zahra will guide you as you learn to cook a variety of tasty Moroccan recipes. Marrakech Cooking School offers a highly personalised, interactive and fun cooking experience. Classes for private groups can be tailored to your tastes or join a daily workshop with other guests to create an international flavour!


All classes are conducted in English-language and include preparation of at least two mouth-watering Moroccan dishes such as briouat, pastilla and a spicy cooked salad plus a fish, chicken, beef or lamb tagine. Roast rabbit in Fassia mustard sauce is a real favourite as are Fatim-Zahra’s barbecued brochettes. Royal couscous is always prepared on Fridays – the traditional day for eating couscous in Morocco. Every day Marrakech Cooking School’s ‘Dada’ demonstrates how to prepare couscous to perfection. All guests will try their hand at making dough and baking bread the Moroccan way! Menus change on a daily basis and our small group size guarantees a personalised experience.
