Our members here at IgoUgo are pretty DIY, which is why we think they might be interested in this trip to Morocco. Operated by Brown & Hudson, the seven-night trip will be led by guidebook (Rough Guides, Lonely Planet) AND cookbook (Forking Fantastic) author Zora O’Neill, from May 28-June 4.

What’s intriguing to us about the trip is that beyond sampling Moroccan cuisine, participants will learn how to cook the food as well, from teachers as diverse as culinary school professors and street food vendors. The trip moves from Marrakech (at La Maison Arabe) to the Ourika Valley (at Dar L'Ouissia) to Essaouira (at the Kasbah Bab Ourika), with an optional three-day supplement in Fez. Prices start at GBP 3,495, excluding airfare, for the tour. For more information, click here.

Our members have much love for eating their way through this North African country, so if you’d like some more inspiration to tickle your fancy, take a look at this overview of Moroccan cuisine from manlalakbay and this report from Essaouira by dangaroo.
