The Secrets of Moroccan Cuisine

Daily cookery classes

We offer daily cookery classes at both Riad Kaiss and Dar Les Cigognes. Working with one of our three dadas (traditional Moroccan women cooks) or with our head chef (formerly of the Café de la Poste), guests have the opportunity to enjoy the preparation of a dish, learning the techniques, how to use the ingredients. This is typically done ahead of dinner, but can also be designed to suit more specific requests, such as bread making, pastry making, how to make yoghurt, and so on.

We also offer guests the opportunity to join our head chef on his daily rounds of the markets to buy the day's fresh foods in some of the most colourful markets in Marrakech. For those wishing a more profound introduction to Moroccan cookery, or wishing to learn to make something in particular, please do let us know ahead of time and we will endeavor to cater to your request.

Because we make everything we serve ourselves from scratch, guests are often happy to just watch, particularly when we make our pastries. Some even join in.

A number of professional chefs as well as the curious or passionate amateurs have enjoyed cooking with us over the years, and we hope you will too. If you would like to buy our cook book, you may find the paperback on Amazon.com, or the hardback on Amazon.co.uk.
