This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom.

This class highlights the excellent quality of conservas, or preserved fish, by the Ortiz brand, famous in Spain and widely available in the US. Spaniards adore their tinned fish, and when you understand what good quality, artisanally preserved fish and seafood taste like, you will become a fan as well! When fish is conserved with care, only the best, freshest products from the sea are used and preserved at their peak.
