Amal Women’s Training Centre and Moroccan Restaurant is a non-profit organisation in Marrakesh, that helps disadvantaged women gain work experience by training them in the preparation of Moroccan and international food. The centre was established in 2012 by Nora Belahcen Fitzgerald and each year 30–40 women complete 4-6 months of training, which often leads to them finding relevant employment. An unusual but brilliant idea.
The menu changes daily but there’s always at least a choice of 3 starters, mains and dessert and on Fridays couscous is always the star of the show. Prices are extremely reasonable.
The shaded outside seating area in the garden has a wonderfully quiet and peaceful atmosphere and is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious, extremely reasonably priced meal.
The restaurant now offers cookery classes as well, so why not give it a go?
