Cooking Class - Classic Spanish Tapas and Paella

Create a vibrant Spanish feast featuring popular tapas and Spain’s most famous dish.

Join Chef Libby on a culinary journey through Spain as you prepare four of the country's most popular recipes using high-quality ingredients and learning cooking techniques you'll use time and time again.

Begin by toasting Marcona almonds with sea salt and herby rosemary, then make patatas bravas — a spicy potato dish. Next, Chef Libby will teach you the techniques needed to build an authentic paella, including how to choose rice, properly handle shellfish and cook sofrito for a bold paella. Finish with crema Catalana, Spain’s twist on a crème brûlée.
