Anyone who visits Morocco should make sure to taste the country’s signature dish, a tagine. This traditional stew is cooked over coals in a ceramic vessel—the tagine—and is aromatic with cinnamon, cumin, ginger, and other spices. On a Collette trip you’ll not only have an opportunity to enjoy the dish, but you’ll also learn the secrets to preparing it during a chef-led demonstration. (You can also learn how to make traditional Moroccan stuffed bread, filled with potato, onion, meat, and spices.)
Learning to cook a country’s dishes, with local chefs or in the home of a resident, and then sitting down with them to share a meal is a trip highlight for many travelers with Collette. It is one of those special immersive experiences that Collette arranges for its guests—and that is not available to the average tourist.
