Cookery Classes

At the entrance to the med­ina, in a for­mer almond ware­house, l’Atelier Madada wel­comes you under its stone arches. In small groups (8 per­sons max­i­mum) and super­vised by a pro­fes­sional team, a cook and a tri-lin­gual pre­sen­ter, dis­cover the secrets of Moroc­can gas­tron­omy and be ini­ti­ated into the delights of one of the best cuisines in the world. In a friendly and casual atmos­phere, the half-day work­shops will teach you how to pre­pare a full tra­di­tional meal that you could then eas­ily repro­duce for friends and fam­ily. At the con­clu­sion of the course you'll gather in the ori­en­tal lounge to enjoy your prepared dishes with a glass of wine. Finally, after lunch, you can, if you wish, enjoy a walk­ing tour of the souks where you will get plenty more tips on spices and local sea­sonal prod­ucts.
