About The Lotus Chef

The Lotus Group imagined the concept of the Lotus Chef in the riad Ambre, one of the most beautiful achievements of the chain Riads Lotus, just two steps from the Jemaa El Fna. The space has been completely redesigned and equipped to host a cooking school that is both original and authentic. Its patio, its passageways or its magnificent terrace overlooking the Koutoubia offer a dream setting to introduce you to the subtlety of Moroccan cuisine.
