Flavors of Spain Weekend Cooking Class
$900.00 per person
Our weekend will include hands-on cooking classes at my home kitchen studio (the same one you see on TV!) where you’ll learn to make some of my favorite Spanish recipes like Fideus Pasta with Garlic Prawns and Allioli, Chicken Escabechado and a really fun Paella with Chicken, Shellfish and Chorizo that we will make on a traditional paella burner outside on my deck! We have to make Patatas Bravas with Spicy Tomato Sauce and my all-time favorite, Chorizo and Cheese Puffs, Citrus and Cinnamon Crema Catalana, and of course, a seasonal Sangria. That’s just the beginning of our amazing weekend.
If you’re ready to cook up some tapas, make paella like a pro, drink some great Spanish wine and savor the flavors of Spain, join me in San Francisco as we take a virtual journey together!
About the Spain Cooking Class
In this 2-day hands-on weekend cooking class, we'll be cooking in my kitchen studio (the same one that you see on my TV show!) in San Francisco. Each hands-on cooking class will feature recipes learned during my travels around the Mediterranean and the menus are designed to highlight seasonal ingredients and lots of different cooking techniques.
We'll begin by reviewing the recipes, then students will divide into teams and start cooking. I'll work right along with you and show you how to fine-tune your skills and taste buds. When we're finished, we'll sit down in the dining room and enjoy the fruits of our labor!
You probably know that I love wine just about as much as food so wine is a big cpmponent to the meal ! With the meal that we’ve prepared, we'll taste a variety of wines whose flavors have been selected to match each dish, and we'll learn about the grape varietals and origin of each wine.
