Departing Marrakech at 7.30am on Wednesdays, we stop for a picnic morning tea in hidden fields before arriving at the remote traders' weekly market to shop for lunch. It may be that goat tempts you and certainly some olive oil and maybe a tajine for a few dirhams, to take home! While our shopping is taken by moto, we will walk riverside, crossing over a wobbly bridge and into a wonderfully tucked away tiny olive farming village, where we will cook with the ladies in a courtyard kitchen, traditionally over coals. They will have tea and pastries made in greeting, before it's sleeves up and on with the lunch prep. Blistering the peppers for Moroccan salad, dicing vegetables for the couscous and tajine, quartering the chicken and goat, learning the ways of time, that you will be longing to repeat at home way after you have lunched today. You will be way off the tourist trail today in all that you do and all that you are, an amazing day that will change the way you forever, stand before your stoves. Anticipate being back in Marrakech around 6pm.
