Description

Meet your host Luis at the Mercado de la Paz, a local covered food market in the upscale Salamanca neighborhood. The market is filled with stalls selling meat and produce, restaurants, and bars that locals frequent. You will see high-quality, local and seasonal Spanish produce, and learn how to choose the freshest ingredients, some of which you will purchase for your cooking class.

After the tour, join Luis in his kitchen to learn to cook an authentic Mediterranean meal from recipes he has added to his repertoire over the years. Your hands-on cooking class will last about two hours, and you will cook two to three dishes from scratch including a tapas, main course and dessert. Enjoy learning about techniques involved in making dishes such as an oxtail stew, salt-crusted bass in the oven or pisto (roasted vegetables) before you sit down at the table to share the meal you helped prepare with Luis.

This is your chance to feel like a local in a foreign country!

Luis, a veterinary science PhD student in Madrid, grew up in a family that loves to eat which is what drove his passion for cooking. He remembers watching food shows on TV and asking his mother to recreate the dishes, to which she told him he had to do it himself! Luis considers the kitchen the most important place in the house as that is where families and friends get together to eat, drink and cook. Originally from Portugal, Luis now calls Madrid home and is delighted to share the local culture and cuisine.

Your menu may include a few appetizers such as pan amb tomaca (toasted bread with tomatoes and Spanish ham), manchego cheese or fresh tomato salad with ventresca (preserved tuna belly) and will conclude with a dessert of tarte tatin or crema Catalana!
