Ghmat

Written By Mohamed Azim

Ghmat is an an ancient abandoned village ,about one hour drive south of Marrakech .It was the first capital of the Almoravids that gradually declined in importance after building Marrakech in the 11th century .The berber people here are reputed to be  very simple ,hospitable and the wives are excellent  cooks. Moroccan cuisine is  delicious ,distinctive and diverse .The cooks use fresh spices in a perfect harmony .There is a magic in Moroccan food that you need to discover.The berber food has kept its integrity despite the outside influences .Here food is always a big celibration and the Moroccans are proud of .You will be picked up from your hotel and drive to Aghmat village .Have your   cooking –class in a cooperative run by 8 ladies who will teach you how you can cook one of the local dishes .In the afternoon you can visit the “El Moatamid Ben Abad “( an Andalousian poet )mausoleum that  closes on Monday and Tuesday or drive to the ourika valley and enjoy its natural sceneries .You will be to Marrakech around 4 p m.
