Moroccan dishes combine local proteins (think: pigeon, chicken and sardines) with an array of aromatic spices. Many eateries throughout the city serve traditional fare, but one of the best ways for foodies to try this one-of-a-kind cuisine is to sign up for a cooking class. Items generally prepared during cooking classes include tajines (a stew-like dish baked in its namesake pot), mint tea and various salads and desserts.

Overall, recent visitors enjoyed sampling and learning about Moroccan cuisine, adding that this fun experience cannot be missed. Many also heaped praise on their friendly chefs and guides, and said that this activity is great to do with kids. Several tour companies, hotels and culinary schools offer cooking demonstrations, including traveler favorites like Faim d'Epices, La Maison Arabe, Atelier de Cuisine and Urban Adventures.

Prices vary for cooking classes, but expect to pay at least 55 euros or 550 Moroccan dirhams (or $60 to $69) per person. All courses include lunch, and some also cover transportation to and from your hotel. Hands-on cooking experiences are available every day, though some days may have fewer class options.
