6-Hour Private Market Tour and Cooking Class in Casablanca

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet at your local host's home in an upscale neighborhood in Casablanca. After a refreshing drink and getting to know each other, head out to visit the local market. Your guide will help you navigate the market, which can be overwhelming to explore on your own. She will show you where to buy fresh produce, take you to the meat market (not for the faint of heart but a true, local experience), and show you the spices that are on offer.

    Once your market experience is complete you will head back to the local’s home by car to get cooking. During your cooking lesson you will learn to prepare a Moroccan meal in a home kitchen. Be ready to roll up your sleeves and help prepare an authentic Moroccan meal using seasonal ingredients and perhaps Casablanca’s local seafood. You might try lamb tagine with seasonal vegetables, marinated and grilled seafood, Moroccan lemon chicken with olives, couscous, tchackchouka (roasted bell pepper salad), camel burger or zaalouk (eggplant salad) with homemade bread. You will conclude your meal with a dessert such as milk pastilla, oranges with cinnamon or Moroccan cakes.

    Please Note: Your local host has two young children and they might be present during your experience.

    In addition, please remember, this is not meant to be a professional cooking class, rather this visit is an experience in a local's home so you can share Moroccan culture and cuisine together.

    This is an excellent way to start a Moroccan adventure. After greeting us and a bit of menu planning, Chamsi took us to the open air market where she knows all the vendors. We interacted with them, everyone was smiling and welcoming as we gathered...More

    Due to our work schedules, we were forced to do this tour on a Friday afternoon - not ideal for the market. Chamsi found alternatives that were just as entertaining - and will continue to serve us for the rest of our stay here. We...More
