Loved cooking the chicken tajine w lemons and olives at the Amal center. The hosts and assistants were incredibly helpful, set out the ingredients for us, made a note of my allergy and checked in constantly to make sure we understood how the recipe was made. The food we made was delicious and we're so excited about our recipe cards so we can make tajine at home like the pros! They have bottled water for sale and I suggest drinking water throughout the morning so you don't get dehydrated and are ready for the day ahead!

The lamb tagine was great (could've done with two!) and the service was friendly and helpful. Defiantly stop here if you can, the Amal story is inspiring

I have to congratulate the wonderful people at Amal. Not only is the food simply superb, in a wonderful environment but what they are doing here is a real highlight of our Morocco tour. There are so many average touristy restaurants in Morocco so it's so nice to have something made with love that is truly authentic. Just going there supports the street woman they are training. Go there...its fantastic

I visited Amal for lunch, the surroundings were so calm and peaceful. Service was personal, almost shy and I appreciated how well it fitted with the whole experience. I had salad for starter and Thai green curry for main, tried a specially made smoothie with it. Well cooked, well presented and I left very happy. Next time in Marrakech, I will book a cooking lesson. Thanks for a very enjoyable experience

My partner and I took part in the cookery class, the communications director was on hand to translate and answer any questions we had about the centre. The cooking was easy and fun, it was clear the class had been well planned and it felt like an authentic Moroccan experience. A great morning, would recommend.

I am so happy to know you had a good time at the cooking class. It is always a pleasure for the chef Lalla Fatiha to share Moroccan cuisine with others.

We can't wait to see you again!
