Want to learn to make paella? Do you dream about perfecting the tricky Spanish potato tortilla? Or, would you like to be able to put together a tapa party? Enjoy a vacation in Spain and come cook with me. I’ll show you how to make authentic Spanish food—in my kitchen in Spain!

Next to my own house is a “studio,” a guest cottage built when my kids were growing up so that the grandparents would have a place to stay when they visited. Now the boys are grown men, I am renting the studio as a vacation getaway. Most of my guests are Europeans who enjoy one or two-week stays in this tranquil rural location with a completely private swimming pool. A few have asked about cooking classes, so I’ve added that as an option.
|Classes are held in my kitchen.|
If you’ve read the blurb about me (click on my photo at the left to link to my “welcome” page), you know that I’m not a professional chef. I’m a reporter and cookbook author. I learned Spanish cooking in tapa bars and village kitchens. The cooking classes focus on dishes from the traditional kitchen. Guests stay in the studio, but the classes are in my kitchen.

Meanwhile, the studio is a perfect home base for exploring Andalusia. Granada, Sevilla and Córdoba are only a few hours drive.
