Full description
Make the most of a unique opportunity to share an authentic home-cooked Moroccan meal with a lovely local at her home in Casablanca. After pickup from your Casablanca hotel, begin your discovery of traditional culture and cuisine by traveling to the market first with your host (if option selected). Get to know each other over a refreshing drink before exploring the market together.

As you stroll through the market, find out where your host buys her fresh produce and meat, and be shown the spices on offer. You might even sample a few local Moroccan fruits and snacks. Feel free to ask your host for some help if you're searching for a certain ingredient. Once your market visit is complete, head to your host's home by car to get cooking!

Upon arrival at your host's lovely villa in a suburb of Casablanca, savor a welcome drink of Moroccan mint tea. As you sip, hear more about life in Morocco and the country's history, culture, and cuisine. Then, join Maria in her kitchen to prepare her favorite family recipes during a hands-on Moroccan cooking class. Cook together for about 1 hour and learn how to make 2-3 authentic Moroccan dishes — such as tagine and a chickpea and couscous salad — before sitting down at the dining table to enjoy them.

Your meal will also include other dishes prepared by Maria in advance. These might be harira (a traditional soup), pastille (a type of Moroccan meat pie, filled with spiced meat and apricots), or something else. Your meal will conclude with a dessert such as oranges with cinnamon or cake. Leave with recipes, a full stomach, and memories that last a lifetime.
