This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our registration policies here

This class is for those who want to learn to make some classic Spanish dishes they may have tried in restaurants (or at least heard of) but never attempted at home. They are the crowd pleasers, as well as recipes Spaniards consume very regularly ,and that are always easily found in Spanish bars and restaurants.

Tortilla de patatas (Spanish Potato Omelet): though it is omnipresent and made in homes, bars and restaurants, it’s super simple with only a few ingredients, but actually somewhat time consuming and not that easy to get just right without a few key preparation tips, which we will share here. Gazpacho: my mother in law’s recipe, the one in my cookbook Gambas al ajillo, garlic shrimp, everybody’s favorite seafood made in a simple yet delicious way. Key are high quality ingredients!
