Marrakech is renowned for its tasty food – terrific tagines, beautiful briwats, fabulous faqqas… traditional breads, Atlantic and Mediterranean fish, locally produced fruit and spices galore!
Growing in popularity are cookery courses inspired by a desire on the part of many tourists to learn about Moroccan culinary specialities and how to prepare them. Half day cookery workshops, perfect for time sensitive travellers, aim to introduce novices and even professionals to the secrets of Moroccan cuisine and, above all, to the role in it of local spices. Les Borjs de la Kasbah has been running courses for several years now with conspicuous success.
Residents at the hotel may choose to attend between one and three sessions over several days learning, usually from the chef himself, how to prepare a traditional three-course Moroccan meal from a list of options.
A typical meal might include, for example, a starter selection of Moroccan salads or harira chickpea soup, a main course of chicken tagine with preserved lemons or seven-vegetable couscous and, for dessert, a milk pastilla or orange salad with cinnamon.
Participants are given detailed recipes for the dishes produced as well as a pen and paper for making notes and aprons and chef’s toques. And once you have produced your meal you can enjoy the result in the comfort of our hotel restaurant.
