I will pick you up at your accommodation place and from there on we will go shopping our needed ingredients at the neighborhood markets and/ or little shops. You can define your desired menu or type of food in advanced or we can simply go shopping and decide our menu during our market visit.

A Recent Review of this tour

What can you say, when you felt like family at Yves' home. We loved the visit to the market and the cooking was marvelous. A glass of cava on the rooftop deck made us feel so at home! Can't wait to try these tapas dishes at home. A special thank you, because we could not use garlic due to allergy and yet Yves compensated and all the dishes were remarkable. A true "chef". Loved it!!
