Prepare a delicious 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. Our chef will show you a choice of salads and one or two tajines.

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 after the class: 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. Before the tour, you would strengthen yourself with a tea ceremony and a small snack. 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.
