Full description
Meet your expert guide near one of Madrid’s most historic markets, where neighborhood residents have been shopping for over a century. Head inside to discover a gastronomic haven of delicious, high-quality Spanish products that form the building blocks of local cuisine. After stopping at several stalls to learn about some of Spain’s most essential ingredients, you’ll enjoy a typical aperitif of sweet vermouth and light tapas. Now that you have a solid understanding of Spanish food basics, it’s time to get hands-on. You’ll head behind the scenes of one of the most exciting restaurants in Madrid’s Huertas neighborhood into a beautiful cooking space reserved just for your small group. Here you’ll meet your instructor, a talented chef who’s studied at the Basque Culinary Institute in northern Spain and worked under a Michelin-starred chef in NYC. Over the next few hours, he’ll help you make a selection of traditional tapas representing the best of regional Spanish cuisine, along with the star of the show: authentic seafood paella. You’ll sit down to enjoy your homemade lunch and dessert with your choice of beer or wine, and head home with a deeper knowledge of Spanish cuisine (and several easy and delicious recipes to recreate in your own kitchen).
