We found Morocco to be beautiful, intriguing, and overwhelming. We would hit the square all day then go relax at our secluded riad about 30 km south of all the chaos.
One thing we knew we absolutely had to do was learn how to cook with all the amazing ingredients for sale in the square. So, we hired a guide to take us through the spice markets and hand-pick some stuff to cook with. [I'm deliberately omitted the meat market experience.] Then she took us to her kitchen and taught us how to prepare some delicious tagine dishes.
What an experience!
