Friendly Moroccan cooking classes in the elegant surroundings of Restaurant Riad Monceau Marrakech
The elegant and highly exclusive surroundings of Restaurant Riad Monceau provide a perfect setting for friendly Moroccan cooking classes affording enthusiasts – beginners as well as advanced – a chance to discover the secrets of some of the best Moroccan cuisine recipes in a professional but also genuinely relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
Led by Rachida Sahnoune, the Riad Monceau’s chef, or one of her prime assistants, and held every morning in the restaurant kitchen itself, Moroccan cookery classes welcome very few participants in order to ensure a real ‘hands-on’ approach and encourage lively interaction between those taking part.
Each half-day Moroccan cooking course is an opportunity to learn how to prepare – depending on the day – either an entree and a main course or a main course and a dessert. At the end of the session, the apprentice chefs sit down to enjoy their own creations in the magical setting of the Riad Monceau boutique hotel, one of the most luxury riads in the Marrakech medina.
Though regular daily Moroccan cooking classes of the Riad Monceau’s Moroccan cooking school welcome a limited number of participants we can also arrange special cooking courses for larger groups as well as for professionals cooks who would like to study such or such part of Moroccan traditional gastronomy. Thank you to contact us per phone or email for this kind of special demand.

Though Restaurant Riad Monceau is of very easy reach (direct access from Jemaa El Fna which is less than 2-minute walk), as the Marrakech medina’s streets feature no signs at all – one of the numerous charms of the amazing old city (!), we strongly recommend you check our exact location out on the Google map available on this website before coming.
The Riad Monceau was recently rewarded by the publication of a beautiful luxury cookbook featuring 56 great Moroccan recipes by R. Sahnoune : “ Riad Monceau – A palace of Moroccan gastronomy “. Available at most bookstores as well as on Amazon. Kindly read the article dedicated to the book on our news blog or, for a first look, see the online overview of the book published on ISSUU.
