This workshop was great fun, highly interactive and well organised. A ‘translator’ met us at a central place, and took us to the venue - that was appreciated, because I doubt we would have found it otherwise!! The instructor was well organised, had templates and material ready and we felt well catered and prepared for. The amount of work that goes into a slipper was a real eye-opener, and certainly gave us a new appreciation of the instructor’s work. Our translator was hardly necessary as our instructor had a good grasp of English, but we enjoyed very much her input into the conversation. Overall, this was a top experience that I would highly recommend. We left very proud of our new slippers!!!
Sanae was a fantastic host and cookery teacher, happy with an infectious enthusiasm for life it was great to spend time with her. We went to the souks to buy tagine ingredients and along the way got to experience the way the locals shop. Not a plastic wrapper in sight! We then relaxed at a local Ryad with mint tea and homemade biscuits before starting to prepare, cook and then eat the delicious tagine (we did chicken but if you're a vegetarian just say so). I couldn't have wished for a better experience. thank you
The cooking class was a very unique experience, starting with buying our ingredients in the market and then going to the Riad to prep all of the food we would cook. Our guide/host was wonderful. Sanae was very knowledgeable and included a lot of information about traditional customs in Morocco. It was a great way to learn more about the culture, while also eating wonderful food that we prepared ourselves.
Excellent opportunity to learn sitting next to a master in a small group situation. He was able to teach to our interest and also to our ability. I learnt so much, coming away feeling inspired and grateful for the privilege of the opportunity provided.
This was an excellent look into not only the Moroccan cooking but also a brief glimpse into the lives of the people. The food was wonderful and is something that I will enjoy cooking at home.
