Fill your mind and stomach!!
This is a trip I have created following my own interests when I am travelling abroad, local culture heritage and last but not least, local food. Perfect combination!
Spanish Heritage is very rich and varied. My proposal is a visit to one of the best examples of medieval towns of Spain, Segovia. Of course we can not forget the symbol of the city, the Roman Aqueduct, dated from II A. D. But this is just half of the total experience.
My proposal is to go first to a little village very close to Segovia, called Torrecaballeros, to participate in a private cooking experience in one of the best Restaurants of the Region. We will learn how to cook properly the most popular dishes of both Spanish and local Segovia Cuisine and afterwards, of course, we will eat them all!
We will go directly from Madrid to the tiny town of Torrecaballeros, a place well known by locals from all region for its superb traditional dishes. It is just 10 minutes away from Segovia.
The place I have chosen for our cooking experience is a renovated "Casa de postas"(coaching inn) from XVI century, nowadays one of the best restaurants of Segovia Region.
The owner, a character himself, will "invite us to invade" the Restaurant Kitchen, his Sanctum Sanctorum. We will learn and help preparing several dishes which we will eat later at lunch. Of course at the bar the Owner's son will teach us how to do a proper Sangria. And we will drink it!
Afterwards, we will sit down at the table to enjoy a typical Spanish menu. The starters we had previously cooked together and for main course the famous Cochinillo(suckling pig) cooked for 4 hours in a fire oven.
To burn this great lunch we will visit the town of Segovia, World Heritage Site, in a nice walk admiring the highlights from the Roman and Medieval times
