Traditional Cooking Class at La Maison Arabe in Marrakech

Explore traditional Moroccan cuisine at La Maison Arabe, a culinary venue in Marrakech with a long history dating back to 1946. That year, two enterprising French women, Hélène Sébillon-Larochette, and her daughter, Suzy, were granted the right by the pasha Thami el Glaoui to set up the first restaurant open to foreigners in the city's Medina. The pasha provided a servant from his nearby palace to teach them the intricacies of Moroccan cuisine. La Maison Arabe quickly became one of the leading restaurants on the African continent!

Today, La Maison Arabe is renowned for its cooking workshops, which are open to in-house guests and all food lovers visiting Marrakech. You'll learn step-by-step techniques and the secrets of authentic Moroccan cuisine from dadas (traditional Moroccan cooks), using modern, everyday kitchen equipment. When finished, you'll enjoy a lunch of precious, authentic recipes passed down from generation to generation.
