Do you want to go somewhere else abroad, and want to travel with someone we recommend? We work closely with two long-time friends of Zingerman’s, who offer some additional tours.
Peggy Markel of Peggy Markel’s Culinary Adventures
Peggy’s vision of diving deep into the culture of a region through the food, is very much aligned with what we do on our own tours.
This wonderful tour is based in and around Marrakech, but also spends a few days in a Berber village in the Atlas mountains, and a day on the seaside in Essaouira. You will have several hands-on cooking classes at the beautiful villa outside of Marrakech that will be your home for much of the tour. Learn how to use a tagine, the universal cooking pot of Morocco, and gain insight into the Moroccan culture. The warmth of the people will capture your heart, along with the delicious cuisine, beautiful architecture, and stunning vistas of the cities, mountains, and seaside.
