Today, you will enjoy a private cooking class with a local Chef, a hands-on experience where you will be part of the Chef’s crew and you will learn how to cook seasonal local delicacies such as paella, tortilla and some delicious tapas.

Each Spanish Cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings.  You will enjoy what you have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.

But first, you need to buy all the ingredients for your cooking class. Experience an early morning visit to a local farmers’ market guided by your Chef to shop for the day’s menu.

Brush shoulders with the locals who gather everyday to buy fresh local produce. You will have the chance to talk to farmers, butchers and fishmongers who will explain you everything about ingredients you can only find in this region.

After a welcome drink, you will learn the tips & tricks to the perfect paella and Spanish omelette (as seen on this video) but the Chef will also guide you through lesser-known yet equally iconic dishes, like Galician octopus, gazpacho and the most iconic pinchos and tapas you will find at the best bars in Northern Spain.

These private classes provide a fun, social, hands-on experience, where you will be participating in the preparation of the various dishes under the thoughtful guidance of a professional Chef.  Everything is designed for accomplished and novice cooks, and there are activities in the food preparation process for every skill level. Ribera del Duero red and Galician white wines are served while you enjoy the meal you just prepared. All our menus can be adapted to accommodate any food restriction you may have.

A perfect day of gathering with friends and family to eat, drink and be merry – a fundamental part of the fabric of social life in Spain.

After an unforgettable meal, you will relax in a pristine white-sand beach. These region is home to the prettiest beaches you’ve ever heard of. While the rest of Europe head south, stay ahead of the wave and enjoy this natural paradise in Northern Spain.
