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 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.
