Cooking Classes

Our boutique hotel was one of the first places in Marrakech to offer cooking classes and cooking holidays.  Chef Bahija – who like most of our staff has been with us for more than 12 years – excels at sharing her passion for Moroccan cuisine and culture. Her classes are very popular, having been featured on TV programs in the US and Europe.


Marrakech cuisine is rightly famous throughout Morocco. During Jnane Tamsna’s cooking classes, you will learn how to make the finest Moroccan dishes and Marrakech specialties. Our culinary adventures will lead you from our organic vegetable garden into our kitchen. Only twenty minutes away from our verdant Palmeraie refuge is the eclectic, awe inspiring Medina, where our favourite purveyors will sell you the purest Moroccan spices.  


We host specialist cooking tours in Marrakech at least twice each year, including our friend Peggy Markel’s Culinary Adventures. If your schedule does not align with these, Jnane Tamsna also offers unique 3-day programs tailored to each individual guest who seeks to gain an excellent grasp of cooking the Moroccan way.
