Episode 6

Ainsley's exploration of Marrakesh continues and this time he's getting his hands dirty as he gets a pottery lesson from Mr Mohammed who's been making tagine pots and the like for over 50 years. 

Back in his riad kitchen, harissa and preserved lemon chicken skewers are on the menu, served with a delicious creamy garlic and mint sauce. 

Then for something sweet, Ainsley is hitting the souks in search of Moroccan pastries and he isn't disappointed. What better to wash them down than a traditional mint tea? 

Ainsley has all the tips and secrets to the perfect cup. Local chef Rashida teaches Ainsley how to prepare a classic tanjia, which is taken to be cooked in the fire of a neighbourhood hammam and things get crafty as Ainsley visits a woodworker in the souk before heading to his riad kitchen one last time to make a dish thatÕs a true celebration of Morocco, tagine.
