Day 2: Marrakech

This holiday is a rare treat, a privileged journey to the soul of the country’s sensational food, prepared as it has been for centuries. No fusion cooking, no fancy equipment, just traditional delicious Moroccan cuisine. Working alongside a Berber cook, you’ll learn to cook the Moroccan way. You’ll prepare a slow tagine of meat or vegetables, you’ll grill marinated fish over charcoal and make melt in your mouth meats in the mechoui. You’ll be taken by your enchanting host Abderrazak, around the souks; meet the fabled spice merchants and even see couscous being rolled by the local women. Abbie arrives today and will be met at the airport and transferred to your accommodation.

Day 3: Marrakech

Enjoy a guided tour of Marrakech's bustling medina, visit Djemaa el Fna, the exuberant and enchanting market place and explore the souk, where you can shop, potter, pick up jewellery, pottery and artefacts. Spend the afternoon at leisure and if you wish to swim at a nearby pool then this can be arranged by the manager of the riad. In the late afternoon prepare Tangia – the slow cooked dish of Marrakech, which you’ll then take along to the oven where the locals take their food. Back at the riad watch a couscous and dessert demonstration by our Berber cook and when the Tangia returns, relax and enjoy the your meal in the caidal tent on the terrace that evening.

Day 4: Marrakech

Today you’ll be taken to the Mellah food market and to visit the spice merchants. Back at the riad prepare a feast of tagines and salads to be eaten for lunch or later that evening, the choice is yours! If you did not get to eat dinner in the recommended local restaurant on the evening of Day 1 then this is the night to visit the restaurant.
