"The equipment and the stations where you work are all immaculate, new and beautiful, and the classes are well-designed and multilingual. If you wanted to get deeper into Basque food and culture, and get your hands dirty with a cooking experience, this is where you'd go." -Gourmet Traveller

Learn how to make all the greatest hits of one of Europe’s greatest foodie countries, Spain.  Don’t worry, you will glean the tips & tricks to the perfect paella, but our chefs will also guide you through lesser-known yet equally iconic dishes, like Galician octopus, Spanish omelette, refreshing gazpacho and warming stews.   Capture the bright, dramatic flavours of Spanish cuisine and take the techniques home with you.

  • bilingual instruction with the local chefs
  • aperitif & digestif
  • hands-on preparation of avant-garde dishes
  • plating techniques
  • recipe booklet
  • gourmet lunch with wines
  • souvenir

Each Spanish Cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings.  You will gather around our rustic wooden table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.

I recently attended the Spanish Cooking class here, and had a great time. The space for the cookery class is open and modern, our chef Mateus was excellent and really seemed to love what he was doing. I also genuinely enjoyed the food I cooked, which is a real accomplishment for me...would definitely recommend it to anyone passing through.
