Our favourite Essaouira cooking class is located in a former almond warehouse with stone arches, near the entrance of the medina. You will use a combination of modern and traditional kitchen equipment and cooking techniques to prepare a fully authentic Moroccan meal which you can then enjoy in the wonderfully ambient oriental lounge.

Menus are chosen daily by the chefs based on seasonal markets and the catch of the day – Essaouira is famous for its delicious fish and seafood. Sample dishes include: chicken or fish pastilla, lamb tagine with almonds and dates, seabass tagine with vegetables, kefta tagine with eggs, harira soup, and seven vegetable couscous.

Please note that this class starts at 10:30am and finishes around 3pm, with a long lunch included. We recommend following this class with our Arabian Pastry Workshop for those with a sweet tooth craving a dessert after these savoury delights.
