Get ready for the ultimate tajine experience on this one of a kind tour in Marrakech. From market to plate, you’ll learn how to whip up a tajine from scratch, using ingredients from the infamous Marrakech souks. The best part of it all? You get to devour your tajine after you’ve made it!
We will start at a riad in the medina, the centre of all the action in Marrakech. Here a local will teach you the Arabic words for all the ingredients you’ll need to cook your tasty tajine, giving you insider knowledge for your shopping experience.
Next you’ll be taken to the souks, the legendary markets where all the locals shop for food in Marrakech. Meats, vegetables, herbs, spices; the souks have all the freshest produce you’ll need for cooking Moroccan cuisine, and with your new Arabic skills you’ll be able to order exactly what you want from the locals.
Now it’s time to get your cook on! During your hands-on cooking class the chef will be giving you step-by-step instructions about how the locals cook traditional Moroccan cuisine. Famous dishes such as pastilla, tajine, tanjia, and harira are difficult to make, but with a local to show you how, you’ll be an expert in no time. You’ll learn all about the key ingredients and spices needed to make it as authentic as possible, the perfect skill to take home from your Marrakech travel experience.
Finally, it’s time to eat. You’ll get to savour the fruits of your labour in the beautiful setting of a traditional Moroccan riad, and the food will taste even better as you’ve made it with your own two hands! Your local guide will then take you back to Djemaa El-Fna Square where the tour will finish. From here your guide can give you directions back to your hotel or you can continue to shop in Marrakech’s beautiful souks.
When you’re trying to decide what to do in Marrakech, make sure you don’t miss out on this epic tajine adventure, a truly authentic experience like no other in the city!

Morocco is considered by many to be a liberal Muslim country. Many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves, for example, but you may find that Morocco is very conservative compared to what you’re used to at home, so you should dress accordingly.
As a general guideline your shoulders, chest, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men or women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes. Covering these parts of your body will be considered as respectful amongst the locals.
Lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers and skirts are respectful, cover your body, and keep you cool in the heat.
