Rooftop Cooking Fun!

We loved our time spent with the Amani staff. From our souk visit to the DELICIOUS food we prepared it made for a wonderful experience. Everyone played a role in this great experience from our lovely guide to the chefs, the hotel manager and even the owner. Highly recommend this experience in Fez! I’m still dreaming of the Chicken Tajine we made!!

A truly authentic experience in Fez

We went for the 4h private class with my boyfriend. The experience was fantastic and the setting incredible. The cooking school is set on the rooftop of the riad and has breathtaking views over the medinas rooftops. We learned to cook a traditional tajine after having shopped for ingredients with the chef in the local souk. Do not hesitate if you’re in Fez, the cooking workshop is an absolute must do!

What a fantastic experience!

How to understand the way of life in Morocco? Our cooking experience at the Palais Amani was just perfect for that. We got to visit the souk and shop for our cooking class then had the most amazing experience with chef Zakia. A must do if you’re in Fez!.

A terrific experience with recipes to treasure

My girlfriend and I did one of Palais Amani’s cookery workshops (…) while staying in the riad we had a really great time and can thoroughly recommend it. (…) It was a really great way to spend half a day or so and a rare chance to get an insider’s tour of the market.
