Location Meeting point: Outside Café France in Djemaa El-Fna. (As you walk into Djemaa El-Fna through the main entrance this is a 3-storey café on the right side of the square. All through Djemaa El-Fna there are fake guides who will try and convince you to do a tour with them, so please make sure that you find the official guide who will be holding an Urban Adventures sign or badge and be waiting for you in front of the café.) Finish point: Djemaa El-Fna Square. Itinerary From market to plate, you’ll learn how to whip up a tajine from scratch, using ingredients from the famous Marrakech souks. The best part of it all? You get to devour your tajine after you’ve made it! We will start in Djemaa El-Fna, the centre of all the action in Marrakech before heading into the souks. Here your local host 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. The souks are 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. (And if not, the local vendors will be happy to teach you more food vocabulary!) 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 Moroccan salad, tajine and mint tea 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. The class takes place in the beautiful setting of a traditional Moroccan riad (house), where you will meet the family and hear about medina life for a Marrakech family. Finally, it’s time to eat. You’ll get to savour the fruits of your labor 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! Participant restrictions Children younger than 6 are permitted at no extra cost, but please make sure you inform our guides of this before you take the tour. Additional Information 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. Policies This tour is offered on a "join-in" basis. Maximum group size is 12. Cancellation: 2 days prior 100% penalty. No show 100% penalty. Complete information, including local telephone numbers at your destination, will be included on your Confirmation Voucher. **All information requested must be supplied or booking is subject to automatic cancellation**
