Hello Karima, maybe you will read this feedback too :-) I didn't cook the citron tajine yet, but the salt citron is still waiting in the fridge, just looking for friend who can borrow me a tajine vessel. We had a really nice day with karima. First at the market and in the souks see showed us her spots for fresh chicken, vegatables and fruits. You will see the chicken can't be more fresh and it reminds you what is behind the meat we buy in supermarkets. The selection and freshness of vegatables and fruits is just amazing, because the main part is produced in marroco. At karimas place she showed us, how to make mince tea in marrocan style and had time to become familiar in our small cooking class. Each step for preparing the meal was described in detail from karima, so it was really easy to follow. Sometimes she wants to help to much, so you've to slow up her ;-) The result, our meal, was really the most delicious thing i ate in marrakech and we was in a few good restaurant.
Since our breakfast and transport took much longer than expected we arrived 30 mins too late at the meeting point. I had called about this and since we were not alone 'another cook' was arranged. Sanae was the best we could get! Very friendly, with humor and speaking English very well. We went shopping first after arriving at the roof terrace +/- 1hr later. There we started with Moroccan tea (with lots of sugar!) including an explanation of all the habits and ceremony that comes with it. After tea we started preparing our meals. 3 persons per Tajine, 9 in total. The meat (chicken) was already cut but everything else was 'sliced and diced' by us. Sanae kept talking and joking with us. Explaining about the herbs, local cuisine, etc. We made the main dish, a salad and a desert (orange cinnamon) which was all very tasty. I can recommend this workshop to anyone, it was a very nice activity.
Karima was the ideal guide for this activity. We were taken around the Medina's souk where we experienced the market through the eyes of a local, picking fresh ingredients for our tagine along the way, which would have been difficult for us without a guide. After going around the market, we were welcomed very warmly at Riad Thycas, where Karima showed us the proper preparation of mint tea, tagine and Moroccan salads. We were guided step by step to create the perfect dish, which was exceptional. The setting of the peaceful Riad made it even better. In a nutshell, I would highly recommend this activity for those who are interested in the tradition and culture of the Moroccan people.
Huge thanks to Karima and Sarah for making this class one of the highlights of our short trip to Marrakech. From the trip to the markets, to the preparation to eating the gorgeous food cooked with such expert instruction from Karima, the whole experience was an absolute pleasure. And it has inspired me to buy a tagine (an authentic Moroccan one!) and cook with it myself. Thank you!
Hassan(sp?) was an awesome guide, sweet, funny and knowledgeable! We had a great time. Mini hike was fun and lunch was wonderful. Loved it all. I would have really liked to have time to wander in the village though. That’s my only complaint! Beautiful valley, great guide and company and lovely vibrant culture!!
