If you want to cook something specific, are more confident about your cooking, or would prefer to not be in a group, the award-winning cooking classes at house’s berber come highly recommended (as do their restaurants).
Unlike the cookery schools above, where the menu is largely fixed, here you’ll be asked in advance what you want to cook – specific dishes, or culinary traditions (Jewish Moroccan, Berber, Fassi etc), or how to pair flavours, or particular techniques (like how to roll couscous).
General manager Pierre – who has a very dry sense of humour – will start you off with a tour to meet his market suppliers, and owner Eben Lenderking, an expert on Moroccan cuisine, may come in for a chat. The authenticity and quality of what’s made in the kitchens of these riads is such that Yotam Ottolenghi recently filmed here. Expect a real gastronomic education.
An alternative private class is trip adventure morocco, which offers courses in arts and crafts as well as cooking. Again the approach is very flexible : you can choose start/finish times and the size of your group, and specify what main dish you’d like to make.
Uniquely, lessons take place in a Moroccan home, using the host chef’s kitchen (an interpreter is on hand).
The chef also takes you on a tour of the markets beforehand. A great choice for authenticity, and good value too.
