Cooking Class With A Berber Family from Marrakech

Can you imagine yourself sitting on a terrace of a small Berber house, in a village perched on the mountainside and all around below you are terraced fields of cherries, apples, walnuts, olives and vegetables and the hens are foraging around in the undergrowth, sheep and goats roam the hillsides and the sun is shining down on you? Location location!! This is the village of Imlil, close to Imlil in the Toubkal National Park just below Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa at 4167mts. Just the drive alone to reach this valley is a day out, plus you will go to Imlil weeklly market on the way to buy ingredients. you will learn to prepare a three course traditional meal and of course learn the art of tea making.

    • Tip (Optional)
  • The classes are as much about the experience and connection with the food, its sources and the people who grow it as actually learning to cook the dishes. I guess it's a holistic approach to cooking. Too many people are disconnected from the source of their food these days and I propose to redress that in my classes. So for example, couscous; it does not come in a packet to which you add water, wait 20 mins and then eat; here you will see it made from the raw ingredients and taste the difference 3 hours or so later. Classes can be on days that coincide with local souk days: weekly outdoor markets where the locals buy and sell their produce.
