Gastronomy Holidays in Spain
Come with me for a gastronomy extravaganza like no other. I will match you up with my favourite gourmet expert who not only has a passion for food but knows your destination like the back of his hand. Whether you choose to cook in traditional Rioja, trendy Barcelona, unspoilt Priorat or the real Andalucia I can guarantee that you'll discover the authentic taste of Spain.
Together you can learn to cook in the Catalan, Rioja, Basque or Andalucian way, experiencing the tastes, smells and colours of local, traditional cuisine. We will guide you to the local markets where you will pick the finest specialty food from a choice of ingredients. After you bring your spoils back to the kitchen you will cook a sumptuous four-course dinner while drinking copious amounts of specially selected fine Spanish wine.
I can offer unique culinary experiences in all the major cities like Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, in members-only gastronomy societies in Logrono or Basque Country, in farmhouses, cortijos, haciendas, and mansions in beautiful countryside like the Nature Reserve of Grazalema in Cadiz or the Subbetica Sierra in Cordoba, in wine regions like La Rioja, The Priorat or in beautiful rural areas like the Emporda in Catalonia.
In addition to your culinary experience, you will be exposed to the culture and landscape of one of our sublime locations. Once you've taken off your apron you can wander through Las Ramblas in Barcelona, see Granada's L'Alhambra, admire the valley of vineyards in Rioja, enjoy the sheer beauty of the National Park of Grazalema in Cadiz or hike part of the ancient pilgrimage route of Santiago da Compostela.
What to do in Andalucia
Everyone has a different idea of what makes the ideal getaway. For some, it's lounging on a beach, sipping a cocktail and topping up their tan, for others, it's seeing all the big tourist destinations.
There's no doubt that Andalucia holidays are sure to deliver on both fronts, with miles of Mediterranean beaches and historic attractions like the Alhambra in Granada and La Mezquita in CÃ³rdoba, not to mention the cathedral and Giralda Tower in Seville.
But if you want to really get under the skin of Andalucia and see parts of the country that many may miss, then a holiday from the Unique Traveller is sure to deliver.
For example, you could take a walking tour. Trekking through the Sierra del Pinar mountain range, you'll see some spectacular scenery, not to mention villages like Grazalema. Alternatively, you could tour Serrania de Ronda in the western province of Malaga, explore the Cadiz coastline or see the white villages of Zahara de la Sierra, Vejer de la Frontera, Conil de la Frontera and Arcos de la Frontera.
Of course, the wonderful cuisine cannot be forgotten while you're enjoying this destination during your Spanish holiday.
If you want a hands-on experience, take a cooking class in Andalucia. You'll learn all about the delicious and fresh ingredients like Aracena and Iberico ham - where they come from, how they're prepared and how to choose the best quality. Then you'll get to put your culinary skills to the test, preparing local delicacies in the traditional way. Even better, you'll know exactly how to make the treats when you get home, so you can re-live your getaway again and again.
And while most of Spain is known for its red wines, those on Andalucia tours will instead be treated to some amazing varieties of sherry. Indeed, sherry tours are available in places like Jerez, Puerto Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda and on these journeys, you'll be able to try the tasty tipple, as well as learn about how it's made and the best food pairings.
