Expert Review

The spate of new boutique hotels in Marrakech has been widely noted, but one with a top cooking school on the roof might prompt a double take. The 24-room Jnane Tamsna, run by French designer Meryanne Loum-Martin and her husband, Gary Martin, an ethnobotanist who guides guests through his herb garden, is fringed in 20 acres of vegetable gardens and lush date and lemon groves, providing many of the school’s ingredients. The resident chef Baija Lafredi leads cooking lessons on the roof, where guests will create, say, a chicken and-pear stew in a tagine and caviar d’aubergine. 2010 Smart Luxury Award winner
