OFFER ID 1305725

Chamsi says that coming to Morocco can be overwhelming – in a good way! The sounds, the smells, and the local culture can be a mystery to visitors and meeting Chamsi is the perfect way to dig beneath the surface and connect with local life in a more personal and meaningful way. Chamsi is an Algerian-Canadian married to a Moroccan. She and her husband have lived in Casablanca for three years and in that time have come to love the local way of life, food being a central part of her experience. Chamsi learned the ins and outs of Moroccan cooking from the best home-cook she knows, her mother in law, Lala Naima. They believe that true, authentic Moroccan food is best when prepared at home and Chamsi is excited to share her recipes with travelers. In addition to being a talented cook, Chamsi is a professional photographer and has a great sense of color and texture, which means her food is both delicious and visually pleasing. She lives in a beautiful, newly-built home with a large kitchen perfect for entertaining. Chamsi has a young son who might be present during the experience, depending on the time of day. Enjoy a meal featuring seasonal, home-style dishes that often feature Casablanca’s local seafood. Travelers might try lamb tagine with seasonal vegetables, marinated grilled fresh fish, Moroccan lemon chicken with olives and couscous, tchackchouka (roasted bell pepper salad), and homemade bread. If a cooking class is booked, travelers can expect to have a cooking lesson with Chamsi and her mother-in-law Lala Naima; the class will last about an hour before guests will sit down to enjoy their meal (additional dishes will have been prepared in advance). Chamsi also offers an optional market tour add-on where she will take guests through a local Casablanca market - often challenging for travelers to navigate through on their own! Additional Notes: Market tour is not available on Fridays.
