Moroccan Cuisine at Riyad El Cadi: Our cooking classes
Did you ever dream of colourful markets full of perfume of unknown spices? Do you wish to prepare your own simple but delicious Tajine at home? The Riyad El Cadi has cooking classes to serve you!
Prepare a delicious 4 courses lunch with the help of our knowledgeable restaurant chef under the open sky. And while you sip your good local wine, a very tasty dish simmers in its earthen Tajine on a traditional charcoal stove until ready to eat.
After cooking classes and meals we chill-out as the locals would do: with a glass of mint tea and pastries.

For those who wish to know where the Moroccans shop, we offer a tour through the medina just before the start of the cooking classes: We will take you to the local markets, let you feel, smell and taste the ingredients used for the Moroccan cuisine. Argan oil, citron confit, smen and the spices so typical for the Moroccan cuisine will hold no secrets for you any longer. The tour ends with a tea ceremony and a small snack to gather your strengths for the cooking. Additional charge: 15 EUR per person, minimum 2 persons.
The Moroccan cuisine is far from being fast food:
A Tajine needs time to develop its flavours: spices, vegetables and meat simmer for hours on low heat on a charcoal fire. We therefore kindly ask you to keep in mind that the cooking classes take some time, too.
The Moroccan cuisine uses merely local products and is full of wonderful combinations of sweet-and-salty dishes and surprising ingredients such as pickled lemons and rose water. We are happy to discuss with you the dishes to be cooked during the cooking classes. In the following you will find a selection of dishes for your inspiration:
Zaahlouk of aubergines
Sweet salad of carrots
Salad à la Marocaine
Tajine Berbère with fresh vegetables
Tajine Maqfoul with veal, caramelized onions and tomatoes
Poulet au citron
Pastilla with cream and caramelized figs
