Chef Anibal will teach you how to prepare Spanish favorites, including the cross-utilization octopus.

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Anibal will teach you how to cook several dishes that incorporate a unique ingredient: Octopus. Discover a special method for cooking octopus to use for preparing an appetizer, as well as a Spanish paella.

Begin by prepping the octopus to use as the star of your traditional pulpo a la Gallega — a popular dish in the Galicia region of Spain. Then, prepare a fresh salad to enjoy alongside a warm and well-seasoned Spanish paella featuring more octopus. For dessert, indulge in the citrusy flavors of a Catalan-style burnt custard.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Anibal is extremely talented and has a vast knowledge in culinary. He is very personable and has a great sense of humor. His personality and strong culinary ability allow for fun and exciting culinary experiences! Chef Anibal is super informative on easy tips and tricks to enhance food items. His tip on infusing olive oils with different spices and herbs is one of his many memorable tips he shared with me. I highly recommend Chef Anibal to anyone in the Orlando area!
