Join us for a memorable week-long break into the culinary world of Morocco. We built on our culinary travel experience with our cooking partners some remarkable itineraries and a great selection of typical and unique recipes. To get to the authentic part and soul of a culture means understanding how and what it eats. A nation’s cuisine strengthens its sense of belonging, bringing alive ancestral memories through stories of the locals’ traditions and usual daily life. The Moroccan sense of preserving those ways of culinary art is worth a detour to give it more esteem. These are handed over through the genes and fingertips. Cooking is their identity. Immensely understood, happily shared and jealously conserved for future generations. In Marrakech, fes or Essaouira we go in search of this in the sophisticated life of medinas and old quarters. This week-end long break cooking journey could not be better accomplished without staying at the hot spots of each city. Most of these dwellings are set up in beautifully restored Riads with comfortable facilities. There are great chances to go on a shopping expedition to buy spices, incenses and herbs from the local markets before you meet a chef Mama for a journey into the Moroccan old ways of cooking. In the peaceful Riads, Transformed subtly to marry traditional with modern, you will enjoy tasteful dishes. Respect the old with a sense of the new.

As a general guideline, shoulders, cleavage and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes and is considered disrespectful to the local culture.
