About the hosts:
On the day of the course, Noury and Fiona will be showing you how to make authentic Moroccan cuisine. Noury and Fiona met online three years ago and were immediately drawn together through their love for food and travel. Noury, who comes from Agadir in Morocco, has been cooking since the age of 12. In Morocco, food is an integral part of the culture, with families often sharing meals together from a single, communal dish. After seven months of chatting online, Fiona flew to Morocco to meet Noury and drink in the food, culture and sights. Seven months later, Noury flew to South Africa, where they now live with their daughter Sofiya-Rose.
Noury is a graphic designer and Fiona a musician and teacher. They decided to start the classes to share the wonderful flavours, spices and culture of Morocco with South Africans.
