Morocco has one of the most sophisticated and exotic cuisines in the world. The Rhode School of Cuisine in Marrakech, Morocco offers a stimulating and sophisticated addition to the over-cooked world of cooking holidays.

The Rhode School of Cuisine, with locations in the South of France and Italy, opens a new school this year in Marrakech, Morocco. This red walled, imperial city, founded almost 1000 years ago, is like no other place on earth. Its dramatic setting on the plain beneath the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains is stunning. In this garden city of tall graceful palms and cylindrical cypress trees, surrounded by orchards is Dar Liquama, “The house of green mint”, a luxurious palazzo.
The best of Moroccan cooking is found in the home rather than a restaurant and Dar Liquama is the definitive “home” for a week of culinary adventure.

Cookery classes focus on the exotic Moroccan cuisine: tajines bubbling over hot coals, seafood cooked in outdoor clay ovens. Cook and dine al fresco beneath the cobalt blue ‘sheltering sky’. Explore the souks and visit the Djemaa el F’na, probably one of the most exciting places you’ll ever visit and one of the most exotic outdoor supermarkets in the world. There are pyramids of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, dates, herbs and spices, mysterious potions and rows and rows of mouth watering food stalls.

A combination of hands-on lessons, culinary demonstrations, shopping in the markets, fine food and wine, superlative service and cultural expeditions are essential ingredients for an unforgettable holiday. Whether you are a novice or skilled cook, you will leave with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to create your own culinary feasts at home. Imagine preparing a Moroccan banquet for your friends; a palatable way to share your experience and an apposite accompaniment to your holiday photographs.
Even the most jaded palates will respond to this delicious and astonishing blend of flavours.

Indulge your passion for food, wine and culture in beautiful surroundings and in stunning locations. The Rhode School of Cuisine, offers cooking vacations for people who love fine food, wine and culture and who wish to experience it in luxury surroundings with new friends and exceptional service. Vacations at their beautiful villas in the Tuscan Hills, above the coastline of the French Riviera and in exotic Marrakech, are designed to be luxurious, informative, enjoyable and relaxing.

These beautiful properties are also available as an exclusive holiday or conference rental.

The Rhode School of Cuisine has published their first cookbook, printed by Cambridge University Press. From our Table to Yours contains over 140 mouth-watering recipes from the French Mediterranean and the Tuscan Hills. Appetizing photography, evocative watercolors plus sections on herbs, cheese, and wine make this cookbook a delightful addition to your collection or a perfect gift for gourmet readers.
