Learn with how to cook Spain’s most famous dish in Malaga from a chef on this 3.5-hour hands-on cooking class. Meet your chef guide and head to Malaga’s finest market, where you’ll learn about the ingredients necessary to make the best paella and other tasty Spanish dishes. Enjoy a traditional lunch and wine with new friends and bring home new cooking inspiration and recipes.
Your Spanish cooking class begins by meeting your guide at a central location. After an introduction to the guide and the rest of your small group, head to the vibrant Atarazanas market. Paella is Spain’s most famous dish and a global icon of their cuisine. Learn about its roots as you peruse the market with a chef, learning about the necessary ingredients and meeting the local purveyors, for a true taste of Spanish culture and history.
After the market, a short 5-minute walk lands you at the modern kitchen where your cooking experience takes place, in the SOHO Art District. Upon arrival, enjoy a tasting of different local, extra virgin olive oils and entrees like roasted almonds, Aloreña olives and a “tostón de bacalao”, a very special and popular snack from this area (cateto bread with cod and orange). Roll up your sleeves and learn how to cook paella and traditional gazpacho. Throughout the activity you will be guided by a member of the team, a so called food-sherpa, who is an expert in our culture and local gastronomy.
After the cooking class, enjoy the fruits of your labor and dine on the dishes you created, expertly paired with wines. At the end of class, continue exploring on your own.
