Day One - Sevilla Tour
On your arrival in Seville we will meet you at either the airport or train station and escort you to your accommodation in a typical Sevillian hotel where you´ll have some time to yourself to relax before we begin our tapas tour.
Tapas are an essential part of Spanish city life and a very different experience to eating in a sit down restaurant. When going out, local people move from bar to bar eating and drinking standing up in a lively and informal atmosphere. This is the only way to get an authentic tapas experience. Our tapas tour guide is an expert on local gastronomy and will use their experience and local knowledge to show you to the best bars in town, within the Jewish quarter, the Barrio Santa Cruz.
You´ll sample a wide variety of meat, fish and vegetable tapas that may include typical delicacies such as calamares (fried squid rings), jamón iberico (thinly sliced cured ham with a delicious salty flavour) and patatas bravas (fried potato wedges in a spicy sauce) to name but a few. All to be accompanied by delicious local wines of course!
Day Two - Tour Seville
You will be collected from your hotel by our local chef who will take you to some of Sevilla´s famous food markets. You will learn about the huge variety of fresh produce available in the markets and specialized stalls stocking cheeses, fresh fish and shellfish, meat and charcuterie, game and even live snails. Our chef will show you how to find the best ingredients to be used in the day´s cooking class.
Ingredients purchased, you´ll head to our chefs private home where you´ll enjoy an aperitif. You will be given written copies of some typical Andalusian recipes. These could include Gazpacho, a deliciously refreshing tomato soup served cold and Moorish inspired dishes such as chicken cooked with almonds and saffron or seafood dishes such as whole fish cooked in a salt crust with lemon oil.
With the hard work out of the way you´ll enjoy your lunch on the terrace overlooking the historic quarter and Sevilla´s famous cathedral. Your meal will be accompanied by local red wine and fino sherry.
