Cooking in Caid's Hidden Palace - 2 Hours from Marrakech
This class, two hours from Marrakech, includes a picnic morning tea, a visit to the weekly traders' market to shop for lunch, time at the C12 Tinmal mosque and an amazing experience of cooking with an olive farming family in a tiny, remote hamlet along the Tizn Test Pass. You will have an opportunity to buy tajine cookware and local olive oil in the market. Being far off the tourist trail, it is a day to dress modestly.
You will prepare 2 tajines over coals, blister peppers for Moroccan salad..all ingredients will be selected from the market, where you will draw inspiration for what is to become lunch..so much more engaging to begin at the beginning, with "Oh let's cook those!..."
Get to know your instructors for this class.
