A world of fragrant spices, nuts, honey, warm flatbreads, fresh herbs, vegetable purees and aromatic sweets, the food from the Middle East is truly magical. In this hands on workshop you will explore the traditions connected to Moroccan cooking and service.

Join us for a cooking workshop with a difference. Immerse yourself in a new culture,  explore new tastes and learn about the history and traditions of food from around the world. Each evening workshop is hands- on and you will cook a variety of different dishes.

At the end of the workshop you will sit down together for a shared feast of your own making. You will leave the workshop with new inspiration and skills and a few recipes to try out at home.

19 November 2016 • Moroccan Cooking with Tonja Jennings

Excellent relaxed and informative instructions. I especially liked the discussion on spices. I learnt some new techniques on cooking onion. Overall each part of the cooking experience was informative. I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.
