Have some extra time during your vacation in Spain? Why not take half a day to learn the original recipes of classic Spanish dishes? Those stuffed piquillo peppers you enjoyed so much one day, or the world famous paella; how about some marinated tuna, or perhaps potatoes a la importancia with clams? After this cooking session, you’ll be ready to prepare a complete Spanish menu!
Your teacher, Gabriela Llamas, is a prestigious cooking professional with 15 years’ experience. She was born in Madrid and is member of the Spanish Academy of Gastronomy, but she has worked for the Culinary Institute of America and many other culinary organizations, both in Spain and abroad.
Your class is individual, and specially designed, just for you. The venue is a small, private professional kitchen, perfectly equipped, and very well located, right in the center of the old Madrid, close to the Palacio Real and the Plaza de la Opera… A delightful spot to go for a walk after lunch, in case you feel like it.
In this cozy atmosphere, Gabriela will help you prepare a complete menu, based on seasonal availability of ingredients. Your task is simple: relax and enjoy the cooking! Feel free to ask questions while you chat with your teacher, and maybe nibble on this or that… Then sit down and take pleasure in the dishes you have prepared as lunch, accompanied, of course, by first-class Spanish wine.
This original experience will show you the soul of our traditional cuisine… and give you a taste of it!
Available upon request all year round.
