Fantastic host, AMAZING FOOD!
, Dec 2021
This is a must do while visiting Marrakech!! We had the best time with Najlae! We got to pick the main dish we wanted to make and shop for all our food at local food stand. Honestly I can’t say enough good things about this experience. The recipes were easy to understand and it’s definitely something you could replicate when you return home! And if the cooking class wasn’t enough, Najlae gave the best tips and tricks for Marrakech! She shared local secrets which was the cherry on top!! Thanks again Najlae!

This was an unforgettable experience. Najlae is vivacious and enthusiastic. She has a wonderful knack for keeping everyone involved. We shopped for the ingredients, drank tea, prepared the vegetables, learned about the spices, cooked and chatted. I would highly recommend this cooking experience in a Moroccan home with a comfortable atmosphere.
Top experience in Morocco

This cooking class with Najlae was incredible, beginning to end. We met at a market just around the corner from her house, where we chose our meal and picked our meat, vegetables, and herbs. We went back to her house, where we drank mint tea (Najlae talked us through the whole process of making the tea) and ate cookies she had made. Then we prepped the meal - everyone being involved in the process and learning a lot about Moroccan spices, cooking methods, and customs, as well as a lot about Moroccan culture in general. And the meal - oh my goodness. It was easily the best meal we ate in Morocco. We had lamb tagine with apricots and prunes, plus 4 Moroccan salads. The salads were so fresh and delicious, and the lamb was insanely tender and flavorful. Even the bread she had (sourced from a bakery) was absolutely fantastic. Beyond the wonderful cooking and eating experience, Najlae went above and beyond to help us with an stressful and tricky situation - my husband had left his phone in the taxi on the way to the class, and very long story short, Najlae talked to the taxi driver on the phone in Arabic and arranged a meet up for us and him by her house to get the phone back. She was so fun to hang out with for a few hours and I would recommend this class 10000%

Absolutely Amazing

Wonderful experience ! Choosing our own meat and veges. We loved Najlae The house was clean and the food we cooked was phenomenal. Would highly recommend.
Just perfect

Cooking with Najlae was definitely the highlight of our stay in Marrakesh! Her bubbly personality, incredible cooking skills and fascinating insights into the city, its culture and history and of course the food really made the class extra special. We cooked a delicious tagine with some Moroccan salads on the side, and I know that I will make all of these recipes again as they were simply fantastic. She also took us to the market to buy all of the ingredients and after the class we took a walk to the spice shop where she explained all of the different herbs and spices that we had just used in the class and we were able to buy some there to take back home. My boyfriend and I did this cooking class right at the start of our stay in Marrakesh and I highly suggest doing this as Najlae gave us brilliant advice on places to go, where buy things and how much things should cost (something that is not always obvious in Marrakesh!). Overall I could not have been happier with the experience, Najlae went above and beyond to make us feel welcome in her home, and even did some Henna for us at the end of the class. I honestly feel like I left with a new friend!
Delicious lamb with prunes
, Apr 2020
We really enjoyed Najlea's class. She was funny, engaging and a really good teacher. The food itself was amazing. She even treated us to a snack as we waited for our meat to cook. If we did it again, we would book her privately, since when participating with others, you learn people have a different standard of cleanliness. We took the class with a German couple as well as a British couple. The German couple was fine but the guy in the British couple, kept doing things like picking his nose, or scatching his bare skin and then touching the food he was preparing. Because of this, I didn't eat any of the cold appetizers because that is what we was in charge of making. So, not a fan of group cooking with strangers but a big fan of Najlae's class.
