Hands on Food Preparation workshop - preparing foods eaten by the Sultans with Market Visit
Come join me, learn to create dishes enjoyed by the Sultans in Al-Andalus and their families, who ruled at the Alhambra in the 13 to 15 century.
On our morning session we visit the open air produce, fish and meat market, chooseing our ingredients. After purchases are made we return to the kitchen and with clients hands-on, prepare our feast fit for a Sultan.
Cooking was an international affair, flavoured with tastes of India, the Spice Islands, Persia, Africa, and places in between from which cultural elements were gathered and brought to the Iberian Peninsula with the Muslims. Herbs and spices like basil, saffron, coriander, jasmine, and mint and spices such as ginger, aniseed, tamarind, cloves, and cinnamon combined exotic imported plants with those that were native to the Mediterranean climate of Spain.
Eggplants, artichokes, melons, bananas, spinach, figs, dates, citrus fruits, honey and a variety of nuts and seed crops for oil were added with native plants known in Roman times.
