Here you’ll meet your instructor, a talented chef who’s studied at the Basque Culinary Institute in northern Spain and worked under a Michelin-starred chef in NYC. Over the next few hours, he’ll help you make a selection of traditional tapas representing the best of regional Spanish cuisine, along with the star of the show: authentic seafood paella. You’ll sit down to enjoy your homemade lunch and dessert with your choice of beer or wine, and head home with a deeper knowledge of Spanish cuisine (and several easy and delicious recipes to recreate in your own kitchen).
