Berber Cooking Workshop

Moroccan Berber cuisine

Drawing from Arab, Berber, Jewish, African and French traditions, Moroccan cuisine is widely recognised and provides a healthy diet. Morocco is home to an abundance of locally grown fresh food, due to the wonderful year round climate and extensive irrigation.

Used with an imaginative range of spices, herbs and oils, the produce creates a distinct range of tasty meals including Tajines, Couscous, Salads and Berber flat breads. A wander round a souk gives you a sense of the immense range of fresh vegetables and fruits available to Moroccan families and chefs.

Moroccan Berber cuisine is extremely exciting, appealing to look at, delicately spiced with subtle blends of flavours, full of fresh ingredients and delicious to eat. It has been described as ‘the perfumed soul of Moroccan culture’, a blend of Berber, African, Arabian and European influences.

Moroccan cooking is fun!
If you are expecting some sort of regimented classroom style cookery course then its best you do not read any further. Our Moroccan, Berber cooking courses are more about spending some quality time in a beautiful location and taking a more intimate and personal approach towards the Berber style of cooking.

By definition, most Berber cuisine is ‘slow food’ and the Berbers themselves seldom rush anyway so you need to be somewhere scenic, atmospheric and relaxed at the same time. It’s all part and parcel of the Berber experience.

Dar does not have an alcohol license. However,
 guests staying are welcome to bring their own alcoholic drinks, which they should purchase before leaving Marrakech. There are several shops in the Gueliz area of Marrakech that sell alcohol. In deference to local custom, we ask that alcohol be consumed discreetly.

If you did not get a chance to get your drinks from Marrakech you have the option of going to bars in Marigha/Ouirgane of buying a bottle from them.

From an environmental point we ask that you take the empties away with you – they will at least be lighter
