Food and Tapas in Granada
By Viator, July 2013
Granada Tapas Tour
Sure Granada has the Alhambra, but do you know what else it has? Amazing tapas. Indeed, while most cities across Spain may give you a small, teeny tapa, Granada famously regales you with much more generous and tasty portions. Taste this for yourself on a 2.5-hour small-group Granada tapas tour, during which you can sample Spanish specialties like honey-drizzled eggplant, creamy fresh-from-the-fryer croquetas, and a plate of saffron-infused paella. Along the way, you’ll be sipping on local wines and beers, all while checking out the city’s sights.
Granada Gourmet Food and Wine Sampling
For a more refined foodie experience, take your taste buds on a Gourmet Food and Wine Sampling Tour. During this one-hour visit, you’ll cozy up in a wine bar to nosh on local cheeses and cured meats (like Spain’s beloved jamón), all while sampling three different wines. As you sip and snack, you’ll learn more about the region, its heritage, and of course its gastronomy.
Granada Cooking Class: How to Make Paella
If all this eating and drinking has you inspired, perhaps it’s time to take things into your own hands. During a 2-hour Granada cooking class, you can learn how to make one of Spain’s most famous dishes – paella – from a private chef who’s worked in some of the country’s best restaurants. In the state-of-the-art kitchen, you’ll whip up the classic rice dish, then enjoy the fruits of your labor with a drink and dessert, and of course take the recipe home with you.
