Paella Cooking Class in Malaga
US$87.68
Overview
Learn the art of making perfect Spanish paella direct from a chef in a 3.5-hour cooking class and market tour in Malaga. Pick out the ingredients at a vibrant food market, make a traditional paella and 'gazpacho' (chilled soup) with expert instruction, and feast on your creations with your fellow cooks, accompanied by beer or wine. Tastings of popular local snacks are included.
What to Expect
Meet your chef at the Atarazanas Market in Malaga and set out exploring the food stalls. Wander around the stands of the indoor market as your chef talks about the fresh fruit, vegetables and delicacies on display. Then, with your chef, pick up the best ingredients for making your paella.

Next, stroll to the cooking venue, situated just five minutes’ walk away in the city's arty Soho district. Head into the modern kitchen and enjoy a tasting of delicious local snacks. Sample tidbits such as roasted almonds, Aloreña olives (olives local to Malaga), extra virgin olive oils and tostón de bacalao, a popular delicacy of cateto bread (rustic, thick-crusted bread) topped with salt cod and orange.

Before starting your paella, whizz up a gazpacho, a much-loved Andalucian chilled soup usually made with raw tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Then, make your paella with step-by-step direction and tips from your chef. Learn about the rice and ingredients to use, and start by making a sofrito base sauce before gradually bringing together your paella ingredients in the pan.

Finally, join your fellow cooks and savor your creations teamed with a beer or regional wine, and followed by fresh fruits. Your experience concludes when you leave the kitchen.
