Overview
More
At the entrance of the old medina, in a former almond warehouse, l'Atelier Madada welcomes you under its stone arches. By small groups (8 persons maximum) and supervised by a professional team (a cook and a trilingual presenter) our hosts discover the secrets of Moroccan gastronomy and are initiated into the delights of one of the best cuisine in the world. In a friendly and casual atmosphere, those half-day workshops teach each participant how to prepare a full traditional meal that one can then easily reproduce at home.

I am so glad I took the class. Great information received, the food prepared was delicious as you get to eat what you cooked at the end of the class. Not to forget the visit to the spice shop I found so interesting.

I did the cooking and pastry classes one after the other and both were excellent. The chef has a great sense of humour and her instruction was excellent. We also had a photographer visit for the local exhibition! Just a great day all around :)
