Lebanese and Moroccan Cooking Classes in 2022

A great gift for your loved ones. Vouchers are available now.

Offering great value for money, our cooking classes are a treat for you and all your family, friends and work colleagues. The Lebanese and Moroccan classes cover a range of healthy, quick and very tasty traditional meals, including vegetarian and vegan options that are easy to prepare. You will learn how to cook, store and make three or more authentic dishes. Everyone prepares and helps to put together the meal and at the end of each session, we all sit down with a drink to have a well earned lunch. All participants will take home all the recipes and general cooking tips as well as a free gift. We are happy to make special arrangements for organised groups and birthday parties.
