“Best Moroccan food experience in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Spending the day with Fatima is great! After finding all our ingredients in the souks we made and ate the best Moroccan food we had all week.

Fatima has been a great source of information and inspiration, we learned not only about food but also about moroccan culture. And she even has some great tips for the Marrakech nightlife and fashion :)

Thanks Fatima!

“Flexible and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We spontaneous joined Nezha in the morning of her class. We were 7 people in total and loved our time with her. As she had been on German TV (WDR) and as this was not the first class we took on trips, we knew how it would enrich our days in Morocco.
Nezha took time to explain all spices at the market, had us weigh all vegetables and choose the live chicken. Of course a great course like this needs flexible and friendly people to be a success- we found exactly that and as always, food and company bring you closer with an unknown culture.

“The best way to begin our week in Morocco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

For the first full day in Morocco we started with Fatima at a spice shop in the souk in Marrakech. What fun! We learned about all the tastes of Morocco and how to buy the needed spices should we wish to try our hand at cooking once we returned home. From the spice shop Fatima took us to shop for the remaining ingredients needed for each of us to cook our own Tagine lunch. Following the shopping we were welcomed into Fatima home garden where she with Berber women helping we each prepared our own lunch of chicken Tagine, baba ganoush, with tomatoes and eggplant, of course hummus and a local delicacies that the locals call “cigars” with are filo dough bundles filled with delicacies. In a country where we mostly found French spoken, Fatima speaks excellent English, which was welcome as not all of us speak French. Truly something I am not only glad we did but it also gave some insight to local culture. Bayswimmer

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Spent some time in the spice market where she explained each one. Nice clean facilities. Lots of instructions. I really admire Fatima and think she is a strong character. Very direct and business like. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.
