What you'll do

Once you arrive we will go to my local market (just a block away) where I will introduce you to my vendors and we will buy the freshest and most seasonal of ingredients. I will explain to you what is on season and why is such a good idea to buy local. Then we will head back home, where we will prepare some tapas depending on the season and what the market inspires us. We could prepare: Gazpacho, chorizo in cider sauce, anchovies in vinegar with chips, mushrooms with parsley & garlic... For the main course we may prepare a"Mellow rice", that is similar to paella but prepared with a higher amount of stock so that the rice becomes creamier, kind of like the Spanish version of risotto, and it can be made with seafood, meat or vegetarian ingredients, your choice! For dessert, seasonal fruit to end the class on a sweet note. All the classes can be adapted to vegetarians and vegan visitors, but if you have any other allergies or food requirements just ask!

Arantxa

Born and raised in Madrid I began my working life in hospitality abroad, back home I trained as a professional chef at Le Cordon Bleu (the French cooking school Julia Child attended in Paris!). Since I graduated, I've been working at Cooking Schools and organising cooking classes at my place, an off the beaten track area, if you want to experience the authentic Madrid and learn how we live off the touristy areas, easily reached by public transport. By the end of the class, I will send you all the recipes and you will be able to reproduce the food back home and impress friends & family. I love to teach travellers how to cook Spanish food and being also a Tour Guide I can share lots of tips for your stay in Madrid!

Where you'll be

We will visit a traditional market and meet all the vendors, we will talk to them, learn about their stories and get tips and tricks that will accompany you forever making this a lifelong gastronomic experience! Then we continue the visit in my apartment, where we will have the cooking class, in the kitchen, tasting each recipe as it is finished with a drink, during the sunny weather we may even enjoy the terrace and take the class "al fresco"
