Are you interested in taking a Moroccan cooking class when you are in Morocco? One thing I like to do time willing is to learn how to cook local cuisine.  When preparing for my Morocco trip a friend recommended taking a class with Khadija’s Kuzina if I was going to be in Essaouira. Looking back I am so happy we did this cooking class. Not only did we learn how to make several Moroccan dishes in this class but we loved our wonderful hosts, Khadija and her husband Hussein.

HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS

  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.

Eating what we made in class!

If you find yourself in Essaouira, I cannot recommend taking this cooking class enough. Khadija and her husband Hussein were so kind and welcoming (you are cooking in their home!). There are other cookery classes options in town but I loved that we were supporting a woman-owned business as well as a local. The best way to contact them and to reserve a class is through their Facebook account, which I have linked here.
