When in Marrakesh – if you can tear yourself away from the sights and smells of Jemma El Fna and the wonderful souks – why not try a cooking class?
I recently enjoyed a few hours one afternoon trying my hand at a cooking class at the La Maison Arabe hotel in Marrakesh. Here, their fantastic chef taught me a little about the key spices and ingredients needed to make tasty, traditional Moroccan food.
After visiting the nearby spice shop and bakery for ingredients, the practical cooking began. Over the next few hours I learned how to cook a delicious chicken tagine, bread and a Moroccan side-dish.
The best part? Sitting down with a glass of wine to enjoy the fruits of my labour.
Marrakesh plays host to some wonderful stretches of coastline, including two wonderful beach hotels, Villa De L’O and La Sultana. To find out more about Audley’s Hidden Beach collection please ring one of our specialists on 01993 838 250 or contact us online.
