Overview

Discover the secrets of Cordovan cuisine during a 1.5-hour cooking class in Cordoba. Visit a traditional local restaurant and with a professional chef to guide you, have fun as you prepare two classic Cordovan dishes. While you work, discover the age-old Roman, Christian, Jewish and Moorish influences behind the local cuisine; and turn out your own 'cola de toro' (oxtail stew) and refreshing tomato-and-garlic ‘salmorejo’ (gazpacho-inspired soup) as your chef proffers useful tips. Lastly, sit down to savor your finished dishes with your chef and some specially chosen Andalucian wine.
  • 1.5-hour Cordoba cooking class with a local chef
  • Stroll from one of Cordoba’s colorful patios to a local restaurant where the class takes place
  • Hear Andalucian cooking tips and learn about the distinctive Cordovan cuisine
  • Prepare two classic dishes from Cordoba: salmorejo and cola de toro
  • Enjoy the dishes with Andalucian wine and water
Make your own way to one of central Cordoba’s pretty, flower-bedecked patios and meet your host and the rest of your group. Hear an introduction to Cordovan cuisine as a prelude to what’s ahead, and then stroll to the local restaurant where your cooking class will take place.

Head inside, and be shown into the kitchen to start your class. Then, get the lowdown on the recipes and Cordovan style of cooking. Like the city itself, Cordoba's cuisine has been shaped and inspired by a mix of traditions and influences through the ages, from Roman and Christian to Jewish and Moorish.
Next, start to prepare your dishes — the two local favorites of salmorejo and cola de toro — using the supplied utensils and ingredients, and watched over by your host, a local chef. 
Chop fresh tomatoes and garlic to make the chilled soup, and stir the delicious, robust stew. Discover more about Cordovan food as you work, and get tips on how to prepare, combine and cook the ingredients in time-honored local fashion.
Once your creations are ready, take a seat with the chef and the rest of your group to sample your cooking. As you eat, swap notes on the finished dishes, and enjoy them paired with some fruity Andalucian wine specially chosen by the chef.
Your 1.5-hour experience finishes when you say your goodbyes and take your leave of the restaurant.

This was not a cooking class, just a demonstration on how to make the dishes. While the food was delicious i could have ordered the same dishes on the menu for a quarter of the price
