    A great experience with Edwina and her helpers. A great cook with years and years of experience. Edwina is very serious about cooking so this class is not for those who are not here to learn. This cooking class takes place in her large and charming Riad which is charmingly decorated. These cooking classes not only helped us learn Moroccan dishes but helped us learn basics for everyday cooking! I heavily recommend this for serious people who are looking for a lovely cooking class and delicious self prepared Moroccan meal.

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!!!

The cooking class was the highlight of our trip. We really enjoyed the day with Michel and Ilhame who were welcoming and knowledgeable and fun! While making the meal, we were given nibbles and drinks so we were never hungry or thirsty! I was feeling a little under the weather and llhame made me different nourishing drinks to soothe my throat! The tagine, salads, bread, msemen were all very tasty and we enjoyed eating it outside under the olive trees. I would really recommend this class over any other class in Marrakech!
