Tara Stevens


Journalist & Cooking School Owner, The Courtyard Kitchen; Fez, Morocco & Barcelona, Spain.

Tara is a food writer and cookery teacher who splits her time between Barcelona and the Fez Medina, Morocco (which, unlike cities like Marrakech further south, still falls within the Mediterranean geographically and climatically).

She has long been a passionate advocate of the Mediterranean diet and aims to create new flavours and techniques by revisiting traditional Moroccan and Spanish ingredients and recipes at her cooking school, The Courtyard Kitchen Fez. The cooking school is completely led by the seasons, and uses only products and ingredients sourced from within the medina itself, or nearby farms.
