Learn to cook a full Moroccan meal in Chef Yasmina's beautiful LA home.
Chef Yasmina invites you to her vibrant, welcoming home for this Moroccan cooking class. The saffron hues and open architecture enhance the incredible cooking journey you are about to embark on. Step in and smell the aromas of stewing meats and vegetables in the clay tagine.
For dessert you'll make Moroccan crepes, a nice change from the French crepes you might be used to. Naturally vegan and fluffy, Chef Yasmina serves them with a honey butter syrup, subtly flavored with orange blossom. Chef Yasmina will brew a Moroccan mint tea for you to enjoy.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
Yasmina‘s warmth and care made us all feel right at home. The hours flew by and the food was absolutely stunning. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience cooking lamb and chicken Tagines together, eating outside in the orange blossom-scented breeze, and breaking handmade bread with new people!

This was such an amazing experience! I do not enjoy cooking at all....but chef Yasmina definitely brought the cook out in me yesterday! She is very knowledgeable and super talented. I loved learning about Moroccan culture and being able to break bread literally and figuratively with some amazing human beings.

Cooking with Chef Yasmina was a magical experience. Not only does she know her way around the kitchen, but she is a wonderful person full of wisdom and love. We felt right at home in her beautiful space, which can be described as where vibrant Morocco meets retro-chic California. We walked away not only with new cooking tips but with a renewed perspective on life. Thanks again, Chef Yasmina--I hope our paths cross again soon!

Chef Yasmina was amazing! She was so warm and welcoming we felt right at home immediately! She had an amazing, calming vibe and had so much knowledge to share about the Moroccan cooking style and culture. On top of that, the food was amazing!! Chicken Tagine was a new meal for our whole group and none of us wanted to stop eating even though we were stuffed! The mint tea at the end of the meal was the perfect addition to the delicious dessert! Would do another event with Yasmina in a heartbeat!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! The evening with Chef Yasmina was wonderful! She welcomed us into her home and we were treated as if we were family. Not only was the meal delicious, but the conversations were very enlightening. 100% would recommend!

The first thing you notice when you enter Chef Yasmina's home is just how warm and welcoming it is. The stellar vintage sound system sets the mood (for us: gorgeous, jazz-inflected Moroccan music), art from many cultures adorn the walls, and you immediately gain an overwhelming feeling of comfort. I must preface that everything you make and eat during your experience with Yasmina will be more than delicious, but I also feel compelled to mention that the exquisite culinary aspect is merely a portion of the enjoyment my wife and I encountered. Yasmina is well-spoken, well-read, and facilitates an environment for worthwhile conversation. We left not only with full, satisfied stomachs, but with music recommendations, decor inspiration, a renewed hope in spontaneous community, and a wonderful new friend. 6 out of 5 stars!

The food was magnificent but what really made the evening special was Chef Yasmina. The energy she brings and the vibe she creates makes the experience even more special. When you leave you feel like you just had a wonderful dinner at a friend's house. My wife and I will be coming back again.

Yasmina was a wonderful host and person. She was very informative and accommodating. It felt more like hanging out with friends than a class.
05 Aug 2018
Very personable and authentic. With a lot of love and care, she unlocked the mystery behind the tagine. I also learned a few new ways to enhance any meal. The group was international and a lot of fun. I look forward to the next meal with her.

What a wonderful time my friends and I had at Yasmina's lovely home, cooking, laughing, talking and learning so much about Moroccan food. Oh, and then, of course, there was the eating of the Moroccan food! Absolutely delicious (but not complicated) recipes that we are going to try at home.
Yasmina is so relaxed, full of heart, and knows not only how to cook, but how to teach!
We will remember this day for years to come. But also plan on visiting her again for more classes.
We've made a new friend!
Thank you Cozy Meal for choosing so wisely.
And thank you Yasmina for yesterday--all the fun, food, and laughter.
PS- Her homemade preserved lemons are to die for!

This was my first experience with this website and I was delighted. Chef Yasmina was super friendly, experienced and it was just a pleasure to learn from here and exchange life stories. I would love to take another class with her!
23 Feb 2017
Her cooking class was a wonderful experience for a close friends birthday. Chef Yasmina is a kind, warm, experienced and knowledgeable guide of both the Moroccan culture and of course the food. All of her ingredients were farm to table, sourcing local butcher for the chicken and heirloom tomatos straight from her garden! We all agreed it was one of the most memorable birthday dinners we had ever experienced. If you are on the fence about which chef to choose or if this experience is right for your group, trust me, it was wonderful.

This class was outstanding. Chef Yasmina was great – she showed me techniques that I had not seen before. We made several dishes that were all delicious. I got exactly what I hoped for in the class. Yasmina’s knowledge and experience in Moroccan cooking made my Moroccan cookbooks come alive.
15 Oct 2015
What can I say about Chef Yasmina? She has an amazing presence and makes DELICIOUS Moroccan food. To this day, I am still thinking about the Moroccan bread and zaalouk (eggplant) she prepared for us. Yasmina's spirit is so great, and her home was so welcoming and comfortable.

Chef Yasmina is truly a rare soul on this Earth! She is wonderfully kind, open-hearted, and generous in letting us share her home and her native cooking. We learned so much from the wealth of knowledge she possesses and had so much fun with her bohemian vibes - talking to her is inspirational, refreshing, and nostalgic as she reminds you what is the most important thing about being human - connection! Beautifully exceptional experience. Thank you Yasmina, you’re the best!

The moment we met, there was an immediate feeling of warmth. Yasmina is the most gracious of hosts, and her open conversation was incredibly refreshing. The food was fabulous- the afternoon was enjoyable learning the history of Morocco and listening to her share about her journeys. this experience will forever be seeded in our hearts and the memories from that day will be one of the best. I will be sharing this gift to others and will pay it forward.

17 Sep 2017
My wife and I had the most wonderful time last night with Yasmina. From the second we walked into her home we felt like we were at an old friends house. It is a truly warm and inviting place. Yasmina is a wonderful chef who's food was just outstanding, but almost more important was Yasmina herself. She is just a delight to talk with, if we could have we would have stayed way into the night talking and eating with her. We both highly recommend a night at Yasmina's!
28 Aug 2017
We had a blast cooking with Chef Yasmina! She brought her talent, great fun energy and Morccan culinary traditions to our house in the Hollywood Hills. We learned to make Moroccan orange blossom crepes with honey butter syrup, traditional mint tea and delicious fresh Moroccan bread. My daughter, her friend and I promptly ate the delicious food as fast as we made it. We're looking forward to learning more about Moroccan cuisine with Chef Yasmina. Thank you and Five Stars!

I cannot say enough amazing things about this sweet woman, Chef Yasmina!!!! Do not miss out on such a meaningful class, recipes passed down from her grandmother & rich stories of family & life. Our bellys & hearts were welcomed with kindness & filled with sweetness :) the scent of orange blossom will always remind me of this amazing class & time spent together. Thank you Yasmina!!!!

We had Chef Yasmina's meatball drop-off menu (a slight modification of this menu) and really liked it. She arrived with the food, set it up quickly and let us enjoy every piece of it. We had it for a private event but I can recommend her catering services also for corporate lunches or cocktail parties. Although I'm not a meatball fan, her meatballs were delicious!

Yasmina was a great teacher, going above and beyond to answer our questions. She even showed us how to preserve lemons. The food we made was delicious and we quickly told all our friends about out experience and recommended Yasmina right away. I can't wait to go back!

Chef Yasmina was absolutely wonderful! We had a romantic Moroccan dinner for two and it couldn't have been more delightful. Her amazing energy and spirit elevates the experience. The food itself is as authentic as you can get (the Chef was born and raised in Morocco), delicious, full-flavored and healthy. If you want a memorable dinning experience I cannot recommend her highly enough!
18 Dec 2015
Chef Yasmina is amazing! My husband and I loved our vegetarian cooking class. Her home is warm and welcoming -- just like her. The Moroccan vegetarian food we prepared was delicious and simple. I can't wait to make the dishes at home. I highly recommend Chef Yasmina to anyone who is looking for a fun cooking class in Los Angeles with a great learning experience and plan to take more classes with her.
Born in Rabat and raised in Casablanca, I was surrounded by beautiful smells and great food. Everyday was a celebration of flavors in my house. My mother and grandmothers were amazing cooks and inspired me to learn and develop a love for cooking and hosting. Since moving to America, I have been apart of “Beau Monde” in Philadelphia to “La Creperie” in Chicago. I have started my own business of creating beautiful, healthy Moroccan food with a California twist. I hope to share it with you!
