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.
