Nous avons passé un excellent moment chez Fatima, qui nous a accueilli avec gentillesse pour nous faire découvrir sa recette du couscous ! Après un passage au marché, nous avons cuisiné ensemble en partageant un thé et des gâteaux pendant les différents temps de cuisson. Un agréable moment de partage ! Une fois fini, nous avons pu partagé le repas concocter par nos soins, un vrai régal !! Merci Fatima pour cette agréable après midi. We really enjoy our afternoon with Fatima. After a tour in the market place, we learned her's couscous recipe. During the cooking time, we shared tea and cookies, and talk about our different culture. Once cooked, we shared our dish with her... Delicious !! Thanks Fatima for this afternoon.

We met Fatima at a place of our choosing and she was very welcoming. Fatima showed us about shopping in the medina market. We then went back to her apartment and she shared with us how to cook chicken tagine and salads. Fatima was happy to answer all our questions about her life and family and this felt an experience that took you outside the tourist bubble. When her husband came home he was very happy to see us and we all shared the meal together. If you’e interested in finding out what life’s like for ordinary Moroccan women, this is your chance. Thanks Fatima

Fatima is a delightful person and an excellent teacher. I learned how to create a delicious chicken tagine from shopping in for ingredients in the market (including a live, plump chicken) to preparing the dish and finally enjoying it together with our husbands.

Nous avons eu la chance de vivre cette expérience à la fin de notre voyage, sincèrement nous n’aurions pas pu imaginer une meilleure conclusion . Fatima et son mari Youssef étaient extrêmement chaleureux et généreux. Elle nous a offert un cours personnalisé à nos besoins et sa cuisine est formidable. Je vous recommande absolument ce cours !!

Moment sympathique avec Fatima, nous avons bien aimé faire les achats des produits avec elle dans le souk. Nous avons cuisiné un très bon tajine , du thé à la menthe et une salade de fruits.
