Your Local Host:

Rosa

I was born and raised in Montilla, a small town in the province of Córdoba. I gained a translation degree from the University of Granada and worked for 14 years in international sales. During those years working for two different companies, I had the reoccurring dream of opening my own small boutique travel agency. I wanted to make travellers fall in love with Spain, offering bespoke experiences that will remain forever in their souls.

The flavours of Andalusia

This morning we have a market tour and cooking class. We are strong believers that the best way to appreciate the culture of any area is through its gastronomy and wine. Nowhere is this truer than in Southern Spain. This culinary experience will begin with shopping for supplies in Vejer’s local market. Depending on the season, the dishes which you will help prepare and get to savour are likely to include gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp), tuna & red pepper salad, gazpacho (melon & mint, traditional tomato or almond & garlic). Fresh boiled octopus and boquerones (anchovies) are also a delicacy of this region as it is close to the sea! Your passionate guide will help you uncover the secrets for the perfect tortilla (Spanish omelette), introduce you to albondigas (Spanish meatballs) and treat you to a yummy cake for dessert. Being in the province of Cadiz, this culinary experience would not be complete without sampling the region’s specialties, which is why you will enjoy a preserved tuna and sherry tasting! You will have the rest of the afternoon free to relax and enjoy at your leisure. This evening, you will have a lovely light dinner at your hotel.

Based in beautiful Vejer de la Frontera, on the Costa de la Luz in Cadiz Province, Andalucía, this food tour will give you a unique insight into Spanish food culture. During this creative hands-on class using delicious local ingredients, a hint of exotic Moroccan flavours and more than just a splash of Spanish wine and Sherry, you will create authentic Spanish “slow food”. With a relaxed and fun atmosphere, this cooking class is the ideal food experience, even for non-cooks!

part of the world, although most of these species are concentrated in about ten different types of fish like sardines, anchovies, squid, octopus,
red bream and mackerel. The area is rich in plankton, due to the sun that shines year round, and the different temperatures of the waters that
