Overview

Marbella is among the top 10 luxury holidays destinations in Europe. Known for its glamour and extravagance since the swinging Sixties scene on the Costa del Sol, the small town has rapidly become the holiday destination of choice. But the stylish resort benefits from some of the most wanted things a human being could wish for: 320 days of sunshine a year, 27 km of coastline and a total of 24 beaches, stunning golf resorts, an impressive selection of luxury accommodation, delirious shopping, a lively nightlife and delicious food. Marbella is becoming one of Spain’s best destination for foodies.

At Paladar y Tomar’s Marbella cooking class we will be delighted to escort you to one of the most vibrant food markets in Andalusia. This is not a standard cooking class but a lifetime experience. Not only will you learn new tips about Spanish cooking but you will be immersed in the native way of life. Your Chef, a well known personality in the culinary local scene, is a real advocate of healthy food and she will open the doors of her beachside villa to host you in this exclusive and intimate class. Before slicing and poaching the Chef will take you around Marbella to teach you about wild fish and olive oil, she’s will be your ‘nutrition’ educator.

Marbella is much more than a playground for the rich and famous; it is quite rare not to succumb to this old fishing village charms with an historic old quarter that was once an Arab “medina”, which explains the maze of narrow, winding streets.

Program

The Chef will meet you at the colorful Marbella market or at your hotel (to be defined, if transport is required we can also handle it). You will then dive into a fish market educational program (you’ll learn the difference between farm-raised fish and wild fish). Then, in your way to the kitchen atelier you will stop by an olive oil shop specialized in the best EVOI (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) in the world where you’ll enjoy an extraordinary olive oil tasting. Now all your senses are awakened you will head to the Chef’s house.

Roll over your sleeves and be ready to prepare a four-courses menu while at the ‘open air kitchen’ overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea. When the meal is ready, sit down facing the Mediterranean to enjoy lunch together, paired with some more of our favorite local wines.


What type of food will you cook? We focus on traditional local specialties and Mediterranean diet. The final menu will be decided in consultation with you.

Who is the chef? Our chef, is a well renown culinary personality in the area; she teaches about food and health and is a radio and TV speaker.
