Jorge was an excellent host and very knowledgeable about Zaragoza. We began with a brief history of the city and a tour of the beautiful central market. We then accompanied him to his kitchen in his gourmet shop. We enjoyed various tapas dishes, a paella and the Spanish version of French toast, tortilla. Everything was excellent prepared with the freshest ingredients from the market. The tortilla was outstanding. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes at home. We enjoyed his explanations and his company as we ate the great food. I Woody highly recommend this experience.
Couldn't recommend this experience enough!!

A great way to start our trip, getting to know more about the city and Spanish cooking. We had a Spanish tortilla, tapas, paella and dessert as well as snacks we picked up from the market and (lots of!) delicious local wine.
Jorge is friendly, knowledgable and it really was pleasure getting to know him. He gave us lots of tips on the rest of our time in Zaragoza.
Fantastic value and definitely the highlight of our holiday.

We booked the food experience / cooking class and were both thrilled.
Jorge and his sister and father were superb hosts and couldn’t do enough for us both.
Shopping in the market for ingredients was fun and learning the history was an added bonus.
Thank you Jorge so much we will definitely be back again soon.
