What to Expect

Before getting started with the cooking workshop, we visit our buzzing Atarazanas Market* to discover the best seasonal and local produce. Since this is a complete gastronomic experience, it will be there where we get some of our ingredients.

Just a 5 minutes’ stroll away from the market, in the Art District (SOHO), our modern and big kitchen is located. A welcoming place to feel just like at home.

There you’ll enjoy tapas from the first moment on with an Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting of different local and award-winning olive oils, roasted almonds and our famous Aloreña olives.

Our team will teach you then how to cook traditional recipes, “classics” of our (Spanish, Andalusian and even Malagueña) gastronomy, to get one step closer to enjoy the experience and custom of “tapear”.
To accompany all of these tidbits, we selected an excellent wine of our region elaborated with local grapes.

We prepare everything with fresh, local ingredients and above all, only natural condiments.

Join us in our way of eating, our traditions, and cook some delicious tapas!
