Spend a different day with Morocco Desert Travels traditional Fez cookery school.
We shall pick you up from your accommodation and then the day begins with a shopping expedition to a local souk or market deep in the heart of bustling Fes Medina.

Here we shall purchase all the ingredients that we shall be using later to produce our traditional Moroccan meal during the fun for all cooking class. The butchers will have all the fresh beef, chicken and lamb you need, the vegetable stalls quality local produce at unbelievably low prices, fruit stalls a riot of color and flavours and the spice shops, piled with aromatic herbs and spices used to produce delicious sauces, rare yellow saffron, red hot paprika, fragrant yellow cumin, orange/ brown ginger, the sunshine bright hue of the turmeric, the black of the pepper grounds, brownish sticks or powdered cinnamon and white Moroccan salt, all in all a sensation overload!

Shopping completed, your guide will escort you to the traditional Moroccan kitchen, where you will be introduced to the Moroccan Chefs who’ll be teaching you how to prepare typical Moroccan dishes such as tasty tajines, the essential couscous and varied Moroccan salads, different to those found elsewhere such as the slightly spicy Zaalouk. When everything is ready, you’ll share a wonderful meal of the dishes you have prepared and relax after a busy morning.

The Traditional Cooking Class with Morocco Desert Travels is the ideal way to experience in person the joys of shopping for locally produced ingredients and preparing and cooking delicious traditional dishes. Don’t worry if you’re not a great cook, the course is fun for all, male or female, young or mature, experienced or just a beginner, everyone is guaranteed to have fun on this excursion!

We will, of course, drop you off back at your hotel or riad at the end of the tour.
