Flavors of Spain Weekend Cooking Class

Stay tuned for upcoming dates!

Spain Cooking Class

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

Each hands-on cooking class will feature recipes from travels throughout Spain and highlight seasonal ingredients and diverse cooking techniques. After reviewing the recipes together, students will divide into teams to work on recipes together. When we are finished cooking each day, we'll sit down in my spacious dining room and enjoy hand-selected wine pairings with each of the dishes we've prepared.

Wine Pairings

You know how I feel about wine, so a delicious meal is not complete without the perfect wine-pairing!   At the end of each class, we'll taste a variety of wines whose flavors and acidity have been selected to match those of each dish. 

Spain Cooking Course Details

This weekend course costs $900.00 per person. The cost includes hands-on cooking instruction, copies of all recipes, an apron, and a multi-course lunch each class day complete with wine pairings. Full payment for the course must be included with your completed reservation form. Due to limited availability we cannot provide any refunds for cancellations. *Note: Course fee does not include accommodations or transportation to the cooking school location.

Classes begin at 10am and finishes at approximately 3pm. Classes are limited to 10 students so everyone gets lots of personal attention and a real hands-on experience. We recommend wearing closed-toe, rubber-soled shoes and comfortable clothes for the cooking classes.

After cooking during the day, you will still have plenty of time to enjoy San Francisco and all of its wonderful views and sights. We can provide a list of nearby hotels and bed & breakfasts to choose from for your stay. We can also arrange for car or taxi service from/to your hotel to the classes. We are also happy to provide a list of favorite San Francisco restaurants, cafes, wine bars, shops, and farmer's market locations.
