Spanish cooking class and visit to a local Madrid’s market
- Enjoy a guided tour of a traditional market
- Make authentic paella, two tapas and a dessert
- Learn about Spanish cuisine from an expert guide
- Taste Spanish vermouth, a typical local aperitif
Get a full culinary experience in Madrid, from buying the grocery at a local market to learning how to cook traditional dishes with your own hands.
Follow your guide to one of Madrid’s most historic markets, where residents have been shopping for over a century. Discover high-quality Spanish products that form the building blocks of local cuisine, chat with the vendors and pick up fresh ingredients. You’ll then head to a restaurant in the Huertas neighborhood, where a beautiful cooking space is reserved just for your small group. Meet a friendly chef and taste a typical aperitif of sweet vermouth in the kitchen. While enjoying the aperitif, observe the chef as they prepare a famous Spanish dessert, crema catalana, for you to eat at the end of class. First, you'll assemble a cheese plate and a traditional tapa from the Basque region. Next, you'll work side by side with your group to cook a second tapa, homemade croquetas, and finally authentic paella from Valencia. Along the way, your local guide will share their insights about each dish, including the history behind paella and how to spot true paella Valenciana.
At the end of the workshop, sit down to enjoy your lunch and dessert with your choice of beer or wine.
