Our Moroccan, Berber cooking courses are more about spending some quality time in a beautiful location and taking a more intimate and personal approach towards the Berber style of cooking.
By definition, most Berber cuisine is ‘slow food’ and the Berbers themselves seldom rush anyway so you need to be somewhere scenic, atmospheric and relaxed at the same time. It’s all part and parcel of the Berber experience.
The country of Morocco, located in northwest Africa, is rich with fossils such as ammonites, orthoceras, trilobites and dinosaur teeth. A portion of the Sahara Desert, which once was an ocean, is contained within Morocco and holds many remains of creatures that once inhabited the earth. Skilled artisans have taken great time and care to prepare and polish some of the fossils on this page, such as the Fossil nautiloids and select ammonites. Others such as the crinoids and fossil teeth are left in their natural state.
Sandboarding is a board sport similar to snowboarding. It is a recreational activity that takes place on sand dunes rather than snow-covered mountains. This boardsport has adherents throughout the world, most prevalently in desert areas or coastal areas with beach dunes.
The sandboard base is much harder than a snowboard, and is built mostly out of formica or laminex with special base materials now being made for this sport. To glide in the sand, the board bottom is often waxed, usually with a paraffin-based sandboard wax, before a run. Afterwards, the bottom of the board may have a lightly sanded look to it, while 'Race Base' tends to polish smoother and glossier with use. Most terrain sandboards are composed of hardwood ply, while 'full-size' sandboards are a wood, fiber glass, and plastic composite. However, a snowboarding base will sometimes work on steeper dunes.
