Sample a selection of homemade Spanish treats

This tour allows you to sample some homemade traditional Spanish / Andalusian cooking. I've had some great teachers but mainly my 88 year old "adopted" Spanish grandmother who has taken care of me over the 23 years I've lived here. I'm the host for this tour so the food we make will be served at my house - 'mi casa'

The tour has 2 options:

Option 1:
-we'll visit the market to buy the necessary ingredients
-you'll come to my house to help me make the food on offer

Option 2:
-you'll come to my house to help me make the food on offer


Option 1
-Meet to go to the market and buy the ingredients for the meal
-Prepare and cook the food together

Option 2
-Meet me at my house to prepare and cook the food together

*Please note: the whole event CAN take up to 4hrs

A Recent Review of this tour

We met Gayle and went to a local market to buy some of the food for our meal and then walked to Gayle's home. She gave us lots of local information, answered all of our questions and was the perfect hostess! We are so appreciative to her for allowing us the opportunity to visit her home. We enjoyed chatting with her while she cooked the meal, and the meal that she prepared was delicious! Thank you Gayle for an awesome local experience!
