I booked this cookery course with Eben as a surprise for my husband (who is a chef) for our last day of our stay in Marrakech. Eben had been very helpful via email before our visit to organise the class to be specific to our needs as the class is one to one.
When we arrived we were greeted by Hayat who made us feel very welcome. We were then taken on a tour of the markets that riad kaiss use by Pierre. Originally I was not all that bothered about doing this, but it was great. Pierre was a great guide, very informative and interesting, we visited places that we had not found ourselves.
Pierre stayed with us for the rest of the class where we made 4 salads, couscous from scratch and a sauce and pigeon pastillas - we were taught by the riad's cook who was lovely. We had a great time doing this class, and we both learned a lot.
Afterwards we got to eat what we had made, sitting in the beautiful courtyard - this food was by far the best food we ate during our 3 day stay in Marrakech.
We were told that we could stay and relax at the Riad by the pool, but unfortunately we were getting our flight back to London in a few hours so could not take Hayat up on this offer. Although we did have a little look around before we left. This riad is truly beautiful, it would have been great to stay there, a proper oasis in the middle of busy Marrakech.
I would recommend this class and riad to anyone, the staff here make it a very special place. Thank you very much for welcoming us so warmly and making great holiday memories for us.
